B Resonance of HNO2

  1. Aug 25, 2016 #1
    Guys, consider a molecule of HNO2, in this molecule there will be resonance for its stability. But i want to ask that do states of matter makes a difference in Resonance or not? Because I think in liquid phase there will be no resonance in HNO2 ? Please help.

    What's so special about HNO2 that it won't have a "resonance" in its liquid phase? After all, most, if not all, molecules will have some form of resonance states in the liquid phase. See, for example, H2O:

    This really should have been posted in the Atomic/Molecular/Solid State forum.

    I think due to stability given by hydrogen bonds in the liquid phase there might not be any resonance . Am I right?

    I don't know. But even if this is true (it isn't true for water), why would any other resonance associated with other bonds be gone? The fact that it is still a molecule means that there are still vibrational modes present.

    Have you done a search on any UV-VIS measurement of this molecule in liquid phase?
