carbon monoxide hybridization

Hi everybody, I want to ask about the kind of hybrid in CO and the bond

in CO. Is it right the CO is so active that it immediately react with

the O2 to produce CO2?

Thanks for any help.


I finally got time to take part here Smile

I dont think CO is very reactive ... infact people say it is neutral with water and atmosphere. So with oxygen it has less affinity.

Check this link for hybrids in CO bonds

http://www.chemguide.co.uk/inorganic/group4/oxides.html

But it has affinity to reactive metals like Iron so it cuases hyper oxidation of blood haemoglobin and causes sudden death

Hope it helps.

@navigator,
It doesn't react immediately, on contact, but it does burn to produce co2. Carbon monoxide and hydrogen are normal constituants of natural gas, and burn about the same as the methane.

@anusreethilakan,
i think it has got some affinity for oxygen
it is a strong reducing agent and grabs the oxygen from anywhere it fins it and is converted into carbon di oxide.
but all i want to know is what type of hybridization present in carbon monoxide!!

@navigator,
CO Carbon Mono Oxide is very highly reactive with oxygen to make carbon dioxide and which is very harmful for human beings

No. CO does NOT react with oxygen to produce CO2. However, it does react with certain metals (e.a. Iron) which make it very toxic to inhale.
CO2 is NOT toxic, however, CO2 inhalation without O2 inhalation can lead to asphyxiation.

@roger,
Also, CO DOES NOT burn. It is a normal byproduct of incomplete combustion. (when there isn't enough oxygen for a proper combustion reaction, CO is formed instead of CO2)
I really only made an account on this website because I saw how wrong everybody was on this topic.
