NOTES: This molecule is made up of 6 equally spaced sp3d2 hybrid orbitals arranged at 90o angles. The shape of the orbitals is octahedral. Two orbitals contain lone pairs of electrons on opposite sides of the central atom. The remaining four atoms connected to the central atom gives the molecule a square planar shape.
