Question

Will CCl4 give white precipitate of AgCl on heating it with silver nitrate? Give reason for your answer.

Solution 1

CClwill not give the white precipitate of AgCl on heating it with silver nitrate. This is because the chlorine atoms are covalently bonded to carbon in CCl4. To obtain the precipitate, it should be present in ionic form and for this, it is necessary to prepare the Lassaigne’s extract of CCl4.

Solution 2

No. CCl4 is a completely non-polar covalent compound whereas AgNO3 is ionic in nature. Therefore they are not expected to react and thus a white ppt. of silver chloride will not be formed.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
