Unformatted text preview: fewer than 8 electrons, but all the terminal atoms are sa?sfied, add e‐ pairs to central atom. If a central atom has fewer than 8 electrons (and it is not an excep?on to the octect rule) a mul?ple bond is likely. Move electrons from outer atoms to form mul?ple bonds. (double is 2 shared pairs, triple is 3 shared pairs) Check that your structure is the best possible arrangement of atoms using the formal charge check. FC= V – (L + ½ S) or FC = group number – (# unpaired e‐ + # of bonds). FC should be nearest 0 for all atoms, total FC is 0 for neutral compounds, should = charge on polyatomic ion. More than one “iden?cal structure” may have resonance. Some excep?ons include expanded valence, radicals and incomplete octet.
