AXE vsepr

Postby Stephen Sirmay 1I » Sun Nov 25, 2018 11:03 pm

I'm confused on the VSEPR of AXE. I'm assuming the electronic geometry is linear because it has 2 regions of electron density, but I'm confused about the molecular shape. Mozt of the VSEPR charts I saw online do not even have this classification. Does AXE exist and what is its molecular shape?

I can't think of any examples with the AXE VSEPR, but I believe it would be of a linear geometry if it were to exist because the single loan pair of electrons would want to maximize the distance between itself and the terminal atom.
