  • SF4 Lewis structure is made up of one sulfur (S), and four fluorine (F) atoms.
  • The sulfur (S) is in the central position and fluorine (F) atoms are surrounding it.
  • The lewis structure of SF4 contains 13 lone pairs and 4 bonding pairs.

SF4 lewis structure


It should be noted that, in lewis’s structure, the lone pairs are represented as dots and bond pairs are as single, double, or triple bonds.

So, in the SF4 lewis structure, there are 4 bond pairs means 8 bonding electrons and 13 lone pairs (1 on the central atom + 3 on each fluorine atom) are present.
