General | Latest Info

The Lewis structure is a structural representation of the number of valence electrons that participate in bond formation and nonbonding electron pairs. Dots and lines are used in this structure in which lines represent electrons forming bonds with the central atom and dots are non - bonding pairs. Lewis structure follows the octet rule concept. Octet rule states that an atom should have eight electrons in its outer shell to be stable. It is essential to know Lewis structure as it helps in determining the number of lone pairs and bond formation in molecule. In Lewis structure of the CS2 molecule, there are 16 valence electrons, out of which four valence electrons are of Carbon, and six valence electrons are from each sulfur molecule. Carbon is the least electronegative molecule and thus comes in center. These two sulfur molecules form double bonds with this carbon molecule to complete the Carbon octet. These double bonds have eight valence electrons. The rest eight electrons are shown as lone pairs on Sulphur atom. 2 pairs of lone pairs are on each sulfur atom.

Polarity

As discussed, molecule of Carbon disulfide consists of 1 Carbon and 2 Sulfur atoms on both sides and forms a symmetric linear - shaped molecule. Symmetrically shaped molecules are usually nonpolar. Similarly, CS2 molecule is non - polar because for the following reason, there exist small difference between electronegativity of Carbon and sulfur atoms that make C - S slightly polar bond. Both C - S bonds have dipoles in opposite directions. As a result, they cancel each other and the net dipole turns out to be zero. Therefore, it is generally observed that symmetrically shaped molecules tend to be nonpolar in nature.


What is Carbon Disulfide?

Know about some of the main physical properties of CS2. In its pure form, CS2 appears as a colorless liquid that is almost insoluble in water. Impure CS2 is yellowish in color. This substance is inflammable and quickly evaporates at room temperature. It has a vapor density of 2. 63. Pure CS2 emits a sweet odor similar to chloroform. It has an odor threshold that is 0. 05 mg / m3. However, commercial CS2 grades have a foul odor that is similar to that of rotten eggs. It has a pH value of 7. The vapor pressure for this substance is 352. 6 mm Hg at 25 C. Log octanol or water partition coefficient of CS2 is between 1.
