In context with beryllium, which one of the following statements is incorrect?
It is rendered passive by nitric acid.
It forms Be2C.
Its salts rarely hydrolyze.
Its hydride is electron-deficient and polymeric.
As we learnt in
Anomalous behavious beryllium -
1) Due to small atomic and ionic size
2) High ionisation energy
3) No vacant d-orbitals
4) High hydration energy
Due to small size and high hydration energy of Be3+ ion its salts are easily hydrolysed.
