A series of sulfur compounds with eight valence electrons (octet) such as SF2 and S(CH3)2, 10 valence electrons (decet) such as SF4, SF2(CH3)2 and S(CH3)4 and 12 valence electrons (duodecet) such as SF6, SF4(CH3)2, SF2(CH3)4 and S(CH3)6 were subjected to ab initio SCF-MO computations. Conclusions were drawn from the numerical results with respect to the relative stabilities and ease of syntheses for the super-hypervalent (duodecet) sulfur compounds.
