SF5Cl - sulfur monochloride pentafluoride:
First Draw the Lewis Dot Structure:
Electron geometry: octahedral. Hybridization: sp3d2
Next Draw the 3D structure based on VSEPR rules:
Click and drag the molecle to rotate it.
The molecular geometry of SF5Cl is octahedral and the charge distribution on the central atom is asymmetric; the dipoles do not "cancel out".
Therefore SF5Cl is polar.
This is a somewhat rare molecule, but you can find a little info on it here: Sulfur Hexafluoride.
