Textbook Problem

Phosphorus forms an extensive series of oxoanions.

(a) Draw a structure, and give the charge for an oxophosphate anion with the formula [P4O13]n−. How many ionizable H atoms should the completely protonated acid have?

(b) Draw a structure, and give the charge for a cyclic oxophosphate anion with the formula [P4O12]n−. How many ionizable H atoms should the completely protonated acid have?

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: To draw the structure of [P4O13]n. The charge on [P4O13]n compound and ionizable hydrogen atoms should have the completely protonated acid is to be stated.

Concept introduction: polyphosphoric acids have linear chains and hence are called linear polyphosphoric acids. In the structure of polyphosphate ion, [PnO3n+1](n+2) the linear chains are obtained by uniting PO4 tetrahedrons together through one, two or more O- atoms.

Polymetaphosphates are the salts of polymetaphosphoric acids. These acids are represented by the general formula HnPnO3n. It can be obtained by eliminating n moles of H2O from n moles of H3PO4.

Explanation

The structure of polyphosphate [P4O13]n ion is linear. The structure of [P4O13]n ion is obtained by joining PO4 tetrahedrons in such a way that one O-atom is common between two PO4 tetrahedrons. The structure of [P4O13]n ion is,
