Unformatted text preview: 2 Species (No Lone Pairs of Electrons on A) Trigonal Planar electronic arrangement: AB 3 Species (No Lone Pairs of Electrons on A) Some examples of molecules with this geometry are: – BF 3 , BCl 3 All of these examples are trigonal planar, nonpolar molecules. Important exceptions occur when the three substituents are not the same! – BF 2 Cl or BCI 2 Br will be trigonal planar and polar! Trigonal Planar electronic arrangement: AB 3 Species (No Lone Pairs of Electrons on A)...
