mundane Posted December 16, 2022 Share Posted December 16, 2022 So, i just learned that because of backbonding in BF3, BF3 is a weak acid. This is due to the fact that B orbital if filled internally with F electrons. Now, if we bring NH3 to make a coordinate bond with BF3, it does. Why? Wasn't the vacant orbital of B already filled during backbonding? I am confused. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
