Valence electrons for expanded octets

Postby Kaitlynn Tran 3F » Fri Dec 06, 2019 12:49 pm

Is there a limit to how many valence electrons you can add to an atom that has an expanded octet?

I don't believe there is a limit, per se, but I don't think we'll be dealing with any molecules/compounds with an expanded octet that has more than like 12 valence electrons
