Cubane is a hydrocarbon with the formula, C8H8. It has a cubic shape, as its name implies, with a carbon atom at each corner of the cube. This molecule is very unstable and some researchers have been seriously injured when crystals of the compound exploded while being scooped out of a bottle. Not surprisingly, it has some uses as an explosive. (a) According to VESPR theory, what should be the shape around each carbon atom? Why? (b) If we assume a ideal cubic shape, what would be the bond angles around the carbon? (c) Explain how your answer to (a) and (b) suggest why this molecule is so unstable. I don't know what the shape would be for 8 carbon, I only know up to 2 carbons.
