What would you like to do?
Yes, Chlorine is a double bond. Chlorine has two 2 valence electrons so that makes it a double bond.

Thanks for the feedback!
A double bond has two pairs of shared electrons. In compounds such as alkenes (such as ethane, C2H4) there is "sigma bond" where the electron density lies between the atom…s and a 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 other elements, including carbon, hydrogen, calcium, magnesium, and many others.
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 Cl2, in HCl
a covalent bond means sharing of electrons the outer most electrons on chlorine shell is 7since chlorine is a diatomic molecule (cl2) it comprises of 2 chlorine atoms having… 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.
then it is formed by sharing two pairs of electrons.
no alkane contains only single bond.
Carbon can form double bond, but chlorine will not form double bond.
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).
"What if" is a sign of a poorly thought out question. It's possible to ask a question that starts with "what if" that can actually be answered, but it's a lot less likely tha…n questions that are more specific.. There are lots of things that could happen if a bond in a particular molecule is a double bond. I'm not going to list them all; I'm going to ask you to reformulate the question so that I don't have to read your mind to find out what it is you want to know.. For example:. "What effects does a double bond have on the physical properties of a fatty acid?" See, that's a question that I could actually give an intelligent answer to. Another would be "How does the rate of (a particular type of reaction; be specific) change if the reaction site of the molecule involved has a double bond instead of a single bond?".
