Solution: Chlorine monofluoride, ClF, and iodine monofluoride, IF, are interhalogen compounds – compounds that contain bonds between different halogen elements.Which of these molecules has the larger dipole moment?

Problem

Chlorine monofluoride, ClF, and iodine monofluoride, IF, are interhalogen compounds – compounds that contain bonds between different halogen elements.

Which of these molecules has the larger dipole moment?

Solution

We are asked which molecule has the larger dipole momentChlorine monofluoride, ClF, and Iodine Monofluoride, IF which are interhalogen compounds.

 Dipole moments occur when there is a separation of charge between two ions in an ionic bond or between atoms in a covalent bond.
