Are the atoms in the middle of a molecule generally the atoms with an expanded octet (rather than atoms on the periphery)? For example, in ICl4^-, even though it would make more sense for one of the Chlorine atoms to hold the negative charge because it is more electronegative than Iodine, the Iodine carries it. Thanks!
