Explain the following observations.
a) In2O is more basic than In2O3
c) Lithium salts are more readily soluble in polar organic solvents (ethanol, acetone) than in water© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 4:20 pm ad1c9bdddf
a) This is equivalent to compare InOH and In(OH)3. In+ has less attraction toward OH- than In3+ because it has less positive charge and it's larger. So InOH more readily ionizes and is ...
The solution is given as succinct explanations. The periodic table observations are given.
