Ionic/Covalent bond cut offs

Postby Jessica Dharmawan 1G » Wed Nov 28, 2018 3:35 pm

What are the electronegativity cut offs that can be used to determine if a bond is ionic/covalent?

If the electronegativity difference is greater than 2, then the bond is ionic. If the difference is less than 1.5, then the bond is covalent.
