Abstract

The electron diffraction study of thionyl fluoride yielded the following geometrical parameters (ra structure): S-O 1.420±0.003 Å, S-F 1.583±0.003Å, O-S-F 106.2±0.2° and F-S-F 92.2±0.3°. The average structure (rα°) is also given. Some of the variations in the molecular geometries of SOX2 and SO2X2 molecules (X = F or Cl) involving the valence shell electron pair repulsion theory are discussed.
