The amount of bond hybridization showed the in equality between central atoms angles (Table 2) show distortion from normal VSEPR structures and confirmed deviation from VSEPR structures.
The VSEPR model, first proposed by Ronald Gillespie (a professor at McMaster University) and Ronald Nyholm, has all the characteristics of a good model.
Every chemistry student learns and uses Gillespie's VSEPR model.
Similarly, I was able to compress my in-class treatment of VSEPR theory from one-and-a-half hours to about 20 minutes by having the students go through all of the classic examples within the CAI lessons.
