D11.3 Molecules with More Than One Central Atom

Larger molecules have more than one “central” atom with several other atoms bonded to it. The arrangement of bonds for each central atom can be predicted as described in the preceding sections. The way these local structures are oriented with respect to each other influences the overall molecular shape.
