What is the molecular geometry around the phosphorus atom in the phosphorothioate group?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The molecular geometry around the phosphorous atom in a phosphorothioate group has to be identified.

Concept introduction: In phosphorothioate group phosphrous atom bonded with surrounding atoms oxygen and sulphur as shown below.

images

In the diagram shows P at the centre with no lone pair of electron which are bonded with oxygen and sulphur.

Tetrahedral geometry: A tetrahedral has a central atom which is surrounded by four other atoms. In tetrahedral geometry the bond angle is 109°.5'.

Explanation

A tetrahedral has a central atom which is surrounded by four other atoms. The central atom bonded with each of the surrounding atoms which form bond angle of 109°.5'.

Here phosphrous atom bonded with surrounding atoms such as oxygen and sulphur as shown below.
