Deduce The Structure Of Brf5 On The Basis Of Vsepr Theory

Valence electrons in \(BrF_{5}\) is 7 + 5 × 7 = 42.

The distribution of these electrons in BrF5 is explained below in the diagram

distribution of these electrons in BrF5




There are six lone pairs of electrons around Br. Hence, the arrangement of these electrons around Br will be octahedral.

The hybridization involved is \(sp^{3}d^{2}\)
