In chemistry, the distorted octahedral molecular geometry describes the shape of compounds where six atoms or groups of atoms or ligands are arranged around a central atom (with an electron pair capping the octahedron), defining the vertices of a gyroelongated triangular pyramid. This shape has C3v symmetry.
