IBr3 - Iodine Tribromide:
First draw the Lewis dot structure:
Electron geometry: trigonal bipyramidal. Hybridization: sp3d
Then draw the 3D molecular structure using VSEPR rules:
Click and drag the molecle to rotate it.
The molecular geometry of Br3 is T-shaped with an asymmetric charge distribution on the central atom.
Therefore this molecule is polar.
This is somewhat of a rare molecule (perhaps difficult to manufacture). Here is a similar molecule (theoretically):
Iodine Trifluoride on Wikipedia.
