Does chlorine have a double bond?
No. There is a single covalent bond between the two atoms of a chlorine molecule.

A double bond has two pairs of shared electrons. In compounds suchas alkenes (such as ethane, C 2 H 4 ) there is"sigma bond" where the electron density lies between the atoms …anda pi bond where the electrons are above and below the bond axis.there are lots of pictures about
Chlorine is a very reactive element which bonds with many otherelements, including carbon, hydrogen, calcium, magnesium, and manyothers.
Chlorine can bond with non-metals like its self and regular metals. When it bonds with anouther non-metal it will form an covalent bond and when bonding with a metal it forms …an ionic bond.
Chlorine only has one available bond because it has 7 valence electrons and a full shell would be 8, therefore it forms single bonds.
No, only Compton may double bond
The bond formed by chlorine is a single bond- e.g. in Cl 2 , in HCl
a covalent bond means sharing of electrons the outer most electrons on chlorine shell is 7since chlorine is a diatomic molecule (cl 2) it comprises of 2 chlorine atoms ha…ving 7in each valence shell. for this molecule to be stable it must attain the stable octet configuration 8electrons in their outer shell x x x Cl x x x x 1 o o o o Cl o o o so they share the electrons (marked with a hyphen) to attain the stable configuration. this sharing of electrons between two chlorine molecules is called sharing of electrons within chlorine
Why BCl3 does not form a double bond with one chlorine atom and single bond with other two chlorine atoms?
BCl3 has three single bonds because with 3 single bonds the formal charges of all the atoms are zero. With one double bond and two single bonds the formal charges are incorrec…t because Cl is more electronegative than B, yet it has a positive formal charge. Despite the incomplete octet on Boron when the structure has three single bonds, the formal charge is still better and formal charge is more important than complete octets.
A double bond is a covalent bond, but not all covalent bonds are double bonds; some bonds may be single or triple (or even in rare cases, quadruple) instead.
no alkane contains only single bond.
Carbon can form double bond, but chlorine will not form double bond.
A double bond occurs when two atoms share two pairs of electrons.
Chlorine has 7 valence electrons and needs one more electron to form octet. Hence each chlorine will form only one covalent bond and not two bonds (or double bond).
No. Chlorine has 7 valence electrons (only needs one for an octet).
A double bond in typically involves 2 shared pairs of electronsbonding for example 2 carbon atoms in alkenes , carbon and oxygenatoms in ketones, aldehydes and carboxylic acid…s.
