Expanded Octet of Terminal Atoms

Postby Andrew Bennecke » Fri Nov 02, 2018 8:40 pm

I was attempting to do Self-test 2C.2B in the 7th edition of the textbook (Write the Lewis Structure of I3 -). I wondered if it were possible for the terminal atoms to have an expanded valence shell too?

From my understanding, they should be able to have an expanded octet as long as they are in at least the third period.
