### BF3

Just to confirm:

BF3 would have an sp2 hybridization, but it has an empty p-orbital (can accept a lone pair and have an octet). When BF3 undergoes an acid-base reaction, Boron can accept a lone pair from a Lewis base, and that bond is called a coordinate covalent bond? And that coordinate covalent bond would be a sigma bond.

### Re: BF3

I think that's correct but I believe it forms a pi bond (not positive though)
