Xenon forms three stable fluorides, XeF2, XeF4, XeF6. The molecular structure of XeF2 is linear, that of XeF4 is square planar and that of XeF6 is pentagonal pyramidal. They are given in the following figure,


  1. the structure of xef6 is not pentagonal pyramidal (as predicted by vbt) but distorted octahedral
