Account for the following observations. \(AlCl_{3}\) is a Lewis acid.

Answer

As we know mostly electron-deficient species are known as Lewis acids and these species have vacant orbitals. In case of \(AlCl_3\),\( Al \) has only six electrons in its valence shell.Thus, it is electron-deficient species and has a tendency to accept an electron. Therefore, act as Lewis acid.
