Why hydrolysis of NCl3 gives NH4OH and HOCl, while PCl3 on hydrolysis gives H3PO3 and HCl?

 The hydrolysis of PCl3 may be contrasted with that of NCl3 this difference is due to the change in polarity of P-Cl bond in PCl3 in contrast to N-Cl bond in NCl3.



PF3 is not sensetive to H2O due to strong P-F bond F being more electronegative  than oxygen forms a strong covalent bond with p in coparison with P-O bond.
