all hydrides of set 15 element owns a lone couple of
electrons on main atom and therefore act as lewis bases..
NH3 is plain and forms salt with stout and weak acids...PH3 is a weak base and therefore
procedures salt with anhydrous hydrochloric acid gas...AsH3,SbH3 and BiH3 are
not at all essential...
the cause for such style is : as the mass of central atom boosts..the lone pair
of electron inhabits a larger volume ..in other words electron solidity on
central atom reductions and accordingly its tendency to donate a pair of
electron reductions and hence its basic force decreases as we move from NH3 to
as basic strength is in that order so acidic strength stability will be the
reverse of that:
