Question

Which of the following species have undistorted octahedral structures?
1. $$SF_6$$
2. $$PF_6^-$$
3. $$SiF_6^{2-}$$
4. $$XeF_6$$
Select the correct answer using the codes given below.

Solution

The correct option is B $$1, 2$$ and $$3$$
$$XeF_6$$ has a distorted octahedral structure due to the presence of one lone pair of electrons on the $$Xe$$ atom. $$SF_6, PF_6^-$$ and $$SiF_6^{2-}$$ all have undistorted octahedral structures.
