Problem

Write a Lewis structure and identify the octet-rule exception for each of the following: (select "expanded octet" or "electron deficient octet")

A. PF6-

B. ClO3-

C. H3PO3

D. O3

E. XeF2

Solution

Construct the Lewis structure of each molecule and analyze the central atom to determine if it has an expanded octet” or “electron-deficient


Recall that atoms with expanded octet have more than 8 electrons around it while electron-deficient prefers having less than 8 electrons around it
