VSEPR
Table for Steric Numbers 5 and 6


The freely rotating molecules are using MDL Chemscape Chime. The display and rotation of each Chime molecule can be modified by using the right mouse button.

RASMOL may also be used for viewing and rotating by downloading the pdb files for the molecules. To download the pdb files, please click on the appropriate molecule name or VSEPR shape in the tables below. (Note: If you want to view multiple compounds simultaneously, please download each pdb file and save on your computer. Then open RASMOL outside of Netscape.)
