Class 12 Chemistry P Block Elements Chemical properties of ammonia

Chemical properties of ammonia

  1. Basic nature: It behaves as a Lewis base because of lone pair of electrons. Also it has tendency to behave as bronsted base that is :

Both the reactions above is neutralization reactions

  1. It behaves as weak base that means it precipitates hydroxides.

  1. The lone pair present helps in forming complexes so we can say it is a complexion agent.

This complexing nature of ammonia is due to the lone pair present in it so, it can act as electron donor.
