Unformatted text preview: – SF 6 , SeF 6 , SCl 6 , etc. These molecules are examples of central atoms with six bonding pairs of electrons. Molecules are octahedral and nonpolar when all six substituents are the same. – If the six substituents are not the same, polar molecules can result; SF 5 Cl is an example. Octahedral electronic arrangement: AB 6 , AB 5 U, and AB 4 U 2 Electronic Structures Octahedral electronic arrangement: AB 6 , AB 5 U, and AB 4 U 2...
