Dot structure for SeO 2 .. .. .. :O — Se — O: ¨ ¨ ¨ Once we’ve filled the octets, what do we do? Check the total # of valence electrons 20 total electrons – too many! So, what do we do? Make a bond!

Dot structure for SeO 2 .. :O = Se — O: ¨ ¨ ¨ Are we done? Check the formal charges. FC(left O) = 6 – 2 – 4 = 0 FC(Se) = 6 – 3 – 2 = 1 FC(right O) = 6 – 1 – 6 = -1 Acceptable. Are we done yet?
