Non-Stoichiometric hydrides are hydrogen-deficient compounds which is formed by the reaction of dihydrogen with d- block and f- block elements. These hydrides do not follow the law of constant composition.
TiH 1.5 – 1.8 etc.
Alkali metals form stoichiometric hydrides which are naturally ionic. Hydride ions have comparable sizes (208 pm) with alkali metal ion. This results in strong binding force between the constituting metal and hydroxide ion. As a result, stoichiometric hydrides are formed.
Alkali metals will not form non-stoichiometric hydrides.Answered by Pragya Singh | 1 year ago
What do you understand by the terms :
(i) Hydrogen economy
(iv) Water-gas shift reaction
(v) Fuel cell?
How does H2 O2 behave as a bleaching agent?
Do you expect different products in solution when aluminium (III) chloride and potassium chloride treated separately with
(i) alkaline water
(ii) acidified water, and
(iii) normal water. Write equations wherever necessary.
What do you expect the nature of hydrides is, if formed by elements of atomic numbers 15, 19, 23 and 44 with dihydrogen? Compare their behaviour with water.
How can saline hydrides remove traces of water from organic compounds?
