Sulfur has six valence electrons and can therefore attain an inert gas configuration in two different ways: by accepting two electrons to attain the electron configuration of argon or donating or sharing six electrons to attain the electron configuration of neon. In combination with the much less electronegative element sodium, sulfur accepts one electron from each of two sodium atoms to form the ionic compound Na2S, but in combination with the more electronegative element fluorine, sulfur shares its six valence electrons with each of six fluorine atoms to form six polar covalent bonds with fluorine.
