  4. 4. STUDYmate Methods by which coagulation of lyophobic sols can be carried out. (i) By electrophoresis: The colloidal particles move towards oppositely charged electrodes, get discharged and precipitated under an applied electric field. (ii) By mixing two oppositely charged sols: Oppositely charged sols when mixed in almost equal proportions, neutralise their charges and get partially or completely precipitated. Mixing of hydrated ferric oxide (+ve sol) and arsenious sulphide (–ve sol) bring them in the precipitated forms. This type of coagulation is called mutual coagulation. (iii) By boiling: When a sol is boiled, the adsorbed layer is disturbed due to increased collisions with the molecules of dispersion medium. This reduces the charge on the particles and ultimately lead to settling down in the form of precipitate.13. Describe the principle involved in each of the following processes. (i) Mond process for refining of Nickel. (ii) Column chromatography for purification of rare elements.Ans.

Although chlorine is an electron withdrawing group, yet it is ortho-, para-directing in electrophilic aromatic substitution reactions. Explain why it is so?Ans. Chlorine withdraws electrons through inductive effect and releases electrons through resonance. Through inductive effect, chlorine destabilises the intermediate carbocation formed during the electrophilic substitution. Through resonance, halogen tends to stabilise the carbocation and the effect is more pronounced at ortho– and para– positions. The inductive effect is stronger than resonance and causes net electron withdrawal and thus causes net deactivation. The resonanace effect tends to oppose the inductive effect for the attack at ortho– and para– positions and hence makes the deactivation less for ortho– and para– attack. Reactivity is thus controlled by the stronger inductive effect and orientation is controlled by resonance effect.25.

Explain the following terms giving one example for each: (i) Micelles (ii) AerosolAns. (i) Micelles : These are associated colloids. For e.g. soap. cleansing action of soap is explained through formation of micelles around the oil droplet on a fabric, in such a way that hydrophobic part of the soap molecule is attached to oil droplet and hydrophilic part projects out of the oil droplet. O C + ONa hydrophobic hydrophillic Since the polar groups can interact with water, the oil droplet is pulled in water and removed from the dirty surface. Thus soap helps in emulsification and wasing away of oils from the fabric. (ii) Aerosol : It is a colloidal state. It may be of two types : Aerosol of solid (e.g., smoke) and Aerosol of liquid (e.g. fog).20. 15.0 g of an unknown molecular material was dissolved in 450 g of water. The resulting solution was found to freeze at – 0.34 °C. what is the molar mass of this material (Kf for water = 1.86 K kg mol–1).Ans. Tf= Kf × molality 15g  1000 0 – (– 0.34) = 1.86 K kg mol–1 ×  M  450 1.86 K kg mol 1  15g  1000 M= 0.34 K  450 kg = 182.35 gm/mol22. Explain the following observations giving an appropriate reason for each. (i) The enthalpies of atomization of transition elements are quite high. (ii) There occurs much more frequent metal-metal bonding in compounds of heavy transition metals (i.e., 3rd series). (iii) Mn2+ is much more resistant than Fe2+ towards oxidation.Ans. (i) This is due to strong metallic bonding. (ii) Greater the number of unpaired electrons, stronger and more frequent is the resultant bonding. -(17)-
  18. 18. STUDYmate (iii) Mn2+ has stable half filled (3d5) configuration. Hence does not get oxidised. But Fe2+ has 3d6 configuration hence it can lose 1 electron to become the more stable Fe3+ of 3d5 configuration (or) Fe2+ easily gets oxidised.23. Write the name, the structure and the magnetic behaviour of each one of the following complexes: (i) [Pt(NH3)Cl(NO2)] (ii) [Co(NH3)4Cl2]Cl (iii) Ni(CO)4 (Atomic numbers : Co = 27, Ni = 28, Pt = 78)Ans. (i) [Pt(NH3)Cl(NO2)] IUPAC : Amminechloridonitrito-N-platinum (II) Structure : Trigonal planar Magnetic behaviour : diamagnetic (ii) [Co(NH3)4Cl2]Cl IUPAC : Tetraamminedichloridocobalt (III) chloride Structure : Octahedral Magnetic behaviour : diamagnetic (iii) Ni(CO)4 IUPAC : Tetracarbonylnickel (0) Structure : Tetrahedral Magnetic behaviour : diamagnetic27. Explain the following terms giving one example of each type: (i) Antacids (ii) Disinfectants (iii) EnzymesAns. (i) Antacids : Antacids are mild bases which neutralise the excess production of acid in the stomach. E.g., NaHCO3 (ii) Disinfectants : Disinfectants are chemical substances which either kill or present the growth of microorganisms. These are applied to inanimate objects such as floor, drainage system. E.g., chlorine (iii) Enzymes : Enzymes are proteins/macromolecules of biological origin which perform various functions in the metabolic reactions. They are biological catalysts. E.g., maltase, amylase30.

In NF3, F is more electronegative than ‘N’ hence the dipole is pointing towards ‘F’. (ii) The three equatorial P–Cl bonds are equivalent, while the other two axial bonds are longer than equatorial bonds. This is due to the fact that the axial bond pairs suffer more repulsion as compared to equatorial bond pairs. Cl Cl 240 pm P Cl Cl Cl -(19)-

(iii) + – In NO2 , due to linear geometry the bond angle is 180°, but in NO2, due to bent shape, it is greater than 90° and thus different. ×·×·×·×·× -(20)-
