Question

According to molecular orbital theory which of the following statement about the magnetic character and bond order is correct regarding .

Solution

Correct option is

Paramagnetic and Bond order > O2

 

O2 : Bond order  (two unpaired electrons in antibonding molecular orbital)

 (One unpaired electron in antibonding molecular orbital). Hence O2 as well as  is paramagnetic, and bond order of  is greater than that O2.
