Lone Pair Orientation

Click on the structures above to display in 3D

The orientation of lone pairs as indicated by VSEPR theory, compared with the orientation of HF in the gas-phase hydrogen-bonded complex. The HF molecule is oriented along the three-fold axis of NH3, out of the H2O plane in its complex with H2O, and off the HF axis in the HF dimer.
