Problem 98AE

The reaction of three molecules of fluorine gas with a Xe atom produces the substance xenon hexafluoride, XeF6:

Xe(g) + 3 F2(g) → XeF6(s)

(a) Draw a Lewis structure for XeF6., (b) If you try to use the VSEPR model to predict the molecular geometry of XeF6, you run into a problem. What is it? (c) What could you do to resolve the difficulty in part (b)? (d) The molecule IF7 has a pentagonal-bipyramidal structure (five equatorial fluorine atoms at the vertices of a regular pentagon and two axial fluorine atoms). Based on the structure of IF7, suggest a structure for XeF6.
