Which will have very fast tendency to dimerized ClO2 or NO and why?


In case of ClO2 odd electron is delocalized over 3 atoms so extent of delocalization of odd electron is higher in comparison to NO. Hence tendency of demerisation of a NO is faster that of ClO2.



We know that tendency of demerisation of ClO2 is very poor rather negligible at normal condition as odd electron is delocalized over entire molecule however below -180 it has been found in dimeric form.
