geometric shapes of interhalogen compounds
« on: May 22, 2004, 11:54:52 AM »
Is there a method to find the geometric shapes of interhalogen compounds such as ICl2 ICL4 ?

Can anyone give a text from a recommended book or suggest a site to learn about this ?

Read on VSEPR theory

This website is from Purdue University. Hope it will enlighten u on Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion (VSEPR) theory, to learn how to predict molecular shapes based on the molecular electronic configuration.
