sulfur hexafluoride SF6: consists of a centrally placed sulfur (sulphur) atom with six fluorine atoms arranged at the points of a regular octahedron around it. Sulphur hexafluoride is very inert because the fluorine atoms shield the central carbon from attack. This great inertness makes SF6 a good insulator. It is an extremely potent and long lived greenhouse gas.
