Octahedral electronic arrangement: AB 6 , AB 5 U, and AB 4 U 2 Valence Bond Theory (Hybridization) Octahedral electronic arrangement: AB 6 , AB 5 U, and AB 4 U 2 If lone pairs are incorporated into the octahedral structure, there are two possible new shapes. 1. One lone pair - square pyramidal 2. Two lone pairs - square planar The lone pairs occupy axial positions because they are 90 o from four bonding pairs. Results in decreased repulsions compared to lone pairs in equatorial positions. Octahedral electronic arrangement:
