Problem: Draw the lewis structure for a thiol [SH-] ion. 

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to draw a Lewis structure for SH



Since the compound is composed of two atoms only, no central atoms.


            Group            Valence Electrons

  S           6A                  1 × 6 e6 e

  H          1A                   1 × 1 e1 e

                           From –1 charge:        + 1 e
                                             Total:  8 valence e

H → 1 bond only
