Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by michael on Wednesday, July 30, 2008 at 4:54am.

Hi, I am having troubles with Lewis structure and VSEPR theory of (ClPO3)2-.Do I use 2 bonds for each O and one for Cl, so its tetrahedral, or do I use 2 bonds for one O and one bond for the other two Os(making dative bonds)+ one for Cl and one pair of non-bonding, so its structure is going to be something different? Please help, I am very confused. Thanks
