Drawing the Lewis Structure for XeF6

Viewing Notes:

  • In the XeF6 Lewis structure Xe is the least electronegative and goes at the center of the structure.
  • The Lewis structure for XeF6 requires you to place more than 8 valence electrons on Xe.
  • Xenon (Xe) can have more than 8 valence electrons in your Lewis structure.
  • You'll want to calculate the formal charges on each atom to make sure you have the best Lewis structure for XeF4.
