Class 12 Chemistry The Solid State Diamagnetism


  • Diamagnetic substances are weakly repelled by a magnetic field.
  • This property is represented by the substances in which all the electrons are paired and there are no unpaired electrons.
  • They are weakly magnetized on application of magnetic field in opposite direction.
  • Pairing of electrons cancel out their magnetic moments and they lose their magnetic character.
  • For example, H2O, NaCl and C6H6 are some examples of such substances.
