Which of the organic species mentioned in this story is paramagnetic?

  1. a. triphenylmethyl chloride
  2. b. triphenylmethyl radical
  3. c. the triphenylmethyl dimer

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The paramagnetic species from the given set has to be identified.

Concept Introduction:

  • Paramagnetic species: If substance has unpaired electrons, the species is known as paramagnetic.
  • Diamagnetic species: If all the electrons are paired, then the species are known as diamagnetic species.
Explanation

Reason for correct option:

In Triphenylmethyl radical, the central atom is carbon and its valency is 4. Three valencies are satisfied by three phenyl rings and an electron remains unpaired. Hence the species is paramagnetic.

Reason for incorrect option:

In Triphenylmethyl chloride, the central atom is carbon and its valency is 4...
