Ti, = 1s 2s 2 p° 3s²3p°3d² 4s²

Step 2

From the above electronic configuration, it is clear that Ti can exhibit maximum +4 oxidation state. In the given compound TiCl5, Ti has +5 oxidation state which is not possible. Therefore, TiCl5 does not exist but it may find in some compound like as NH4TiCl5.

Step 3

The given compound TiCl5 has five chloride atoms and one titanium atom as central atom. The...
