Metalloids

Do metalloids form ionic bonds or covalent bonds?

Metalloids can form covalent and ionic bonds. They can form covalent bonds by sharing electrons or ionic bonds by either losing or gaining electrons.

Adding on to that, since metalloids neither have "too many" or "too little" valence electrons as can be seen by where they are placed in the periodic table, they can go either way and lose electrons or gain electrons. Hence, they are called metalloids.

I like to think that since they're in between metals and nonmetals, they can do both covalent (usually nonmetal bonding) and ionic (usually metal bonding).
