NEET Chemistry The s-Block Elements Questions Solved

Considering greater polarisation in LiCl compared to that in NaCl, which of the following statement is wrong –

(A) The m.p of LiCl is lower than that of NaCl

(B) LiCl dissolves more in organic solvent than NaCl

(C) LiCl will ionise in water more than NaCl

(D) Fused LiCl would be less conducing than fused NaCl

(C). Due to greater polarisation by Li+ ion, LiCl acquires some covalent character. Thus the ionisation of LiCl will be less than that of NaCl in water.
