Drawing the Lewis Structure for SiF62-

Viewing Notes:

  • With SiF62- be sure to add two additional valence electrons to your total because of the 2-.
  • There are a total of 48 valence electrons in SiF62- .
  • Silicon (Si) is the least electronegative and goes at the center of the Lewis structure.
  • Silicon (Si) is below Period Two on the periodic table and can hold more than 8 valence electrons.
  • Be sure to put brackets and a 2- around the SiF62- Lewis structure to show that it is an ion.
