Sulfur Tetrafluoride

Sulfur tetrafluoride has 10 electrons around the central sulfur atom. This means there are five electron pairs arranged in an trigonal bipyramidal shape with 102° F-S-F bond angles between the equatorial fluorine atoms and 173° between the axial fluorine atoms. The remaining lone pair is equatorial giving an overall see-saw shape. SF4 SF4 polyhedron
