Which has higher eleetron affinity between nitrogen and carbon?

carbon. though nitrogen is more electronegative than carbon but carbon has more affinity for electrons as nitrogen has half filled stability...


Is nitrogen electronegative?

Nitrogen has a valence of 3 which attracts it to get electrons from other molecules..this attraction it has to complete it's outermost layer is called electronegativity.


What is the oxidation state of carbon in isocyanide?

nitrogen being more electronegative than carbon, the contribution of co-ordinate bond is neglected and carbon provides two electrons to nitrogen. so oxidation number of carbon in iso cyanide is +2


Why carbon is less electronegative than oxygen?

fluorine is the most electronegative atom . therefore atoms closer to fluorine will be more electronegative.


Will nitrogen and oxygen be identical?

No. Nitrogen is triply bonded, and is much more stable at "standard" temperatures than the more electronegative oxygen is.


LDA or n-buLi which is strong base?

n-BuLi is stronger. This is derived from understanding whether carbon or nitrogen is more electronegative. Carbon is LESS electronegative than nitrogen, which means it's better at donating electrons and not accepting electrons (remember the trend of decreasing electronegativity "FONClBISCH"). A Lewis base that is better at donating electrons is defined as the stronger base.


Why is nitrogen more electronegative than phosphorus?

Chlorine is more electronegative than phosphorus. Generally, the trend of the periodic table is that electronegativity increases as you go from left to right, and it decreases as you go down.


Does NH3 has an oxidation number od -1?

Nitrogen is more electronegative than Hydrogen. So +1 for each hydrogen and -3 for nitrogen


Is chlorine is more electronegative than carbon?

No. Chlorine is generally thought to be more electronegative than carbon. (However, there is some theoretical evidence for S(CH3)6 - hexamethyl persulfurane, which is predicted to be stable. Silico experiments reveal that, in this compound the negative charges will be located in the carbon atoms. So it is possible that, in Cl(CH3)3 or even Cl(CH3)5, Carbon may be more electronegative.)


Would two compounds made of nitrogen and oxygen be identical?

No. Nitrogen is triply bonded, and is much more stable at "standard" temperatures than the more electronegative oxygen is.


Which is more electronegative Sr or Be?

Sulfur is more electronegative than beryllium.


Would two compounds made of nitrogen and oxygen always be identical?

No. Nitrogen is triply bonded, and is much more stable at "standard" temperatures than the more electronegative oxygen is.
