Unformatted text preview: AB 4 Species (No Lone Pairs of Electrons on A) Some examples of molecules with this geometry are: CH 4 , CF 4 , CCl 4 , SiH 4 , SiF 4 All of these examples are tetrahedral, nonpolar molecules. Important exceptions occur when the four substituents are not the same! CF 3 Cl or CH 2 CI 2 will be tetrahedral and polar!
