Reactivity towards Metals Chemistry Notes

Reactivity towards Metals :

All the elements of nitrogen family have tendency to form binary compounds with metals. In these binary compounds they exhibit (+1 -3) oxidation state. Examples

  • Calcium nitrides – Ca3 N2
  • Calcium phosphide – Ca3P2
  • Calcium Arsenide – Ca3 As2
  • Sodium Arsenide – Na3 As
  • Zinc Antimonide – Zn3Sb2
  • Magnesium bismuthide – Mg3 Bi2
