Rhodium Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of Rhodium's shells is [2, 8, 18, 16, 1] and its electron configuration is [Kr] 4d8 5s1. The rhodium atom has a radius of 134 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 195 pm. Rhodium was discovered and first isolated by William Wollaston in 1804. In its elemental form, rhodium has a silvery white metallic appearance. Elemental RhodiumRhodium is a member of the platinum group of metals. It has a higher melting point than platinum, but a lower density. Rhodium is found in ores mixed with other metals such as palladium, silver, platinum, and gold. Rhodium is primarily used as the catalyst in the three-way catalytic converters of automobiles it is also highly valued in jewelry. The name Rhodium originates from the Greek word 'Rhodon,' which means rose.


Chlorine is a Block P, Group 17, Period 3 element. Its electron configuration is [Ne]3s23p5. The chlorine atom has a covalent radius of 102±4 pm and its Van der Waals radius is 175 pm. Chlorine ModelIn its elemental form, chlorine is a yellow-green gas. Chlorine is the second lightest halogen after fluorine. It has the third highest electronegativity and the highest electron affinity of all elements, making it a strong oxidizing agent. It is rarely found by itself in nature. Chlorine was discovered and first isolated by Carl Wilhelm Scheele in 1774. It was first recognized as an element by Humphry Davy in 1808.
