Specific formula

Postby Jennifer Torres 2L » Sun Oct 21, 2018 10:57 pm

Is there a specific formula to find out how to deal with the octet exceptions or how to find them?

There is no specific formula, but when we cover Lewis structures, there will be several concepts that we will use to determine if an expanded octet is valid.

I know that we covered this a little bit a the end of class today, but how do we know that there are other exceptions in the lower periods of the d-block? I know we don't need to know this for class, but I just want to see if it connects to other concepts. Thanks!

By octet exceptions are you referring to the half d block and full d block exceptions we learned in class today?
