Chemistry Question: Expanded Octet

Discussion created by Hank Green on Mar 29, 2014

Hi,

For an atom like chlorine that has an expanded octet, would it need 10 filled valence electrons in every case or are there any cases in which it does not have an expanded octet(and just needs 8 valence electrons)?

 

 

Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer my question.
