Polar and Ionic Bond Character

Postby 904914037 » Sat Nov 09, 2019 8:36 pm

Is the following statement correct: The more ionic a bond is, the more polar it is? If not could someone please explain why? Thank you!

I believe that this statement is correct as we would, in turn, have charges unevenly balanced within the molecule.

The greater the difference in electronegativity is between the two atoms, usually greater than two, then it is an ionic bond. This is a step above a polar covalent bond, which has an electronegativity difference that is less than that of the atoms in an ionic bond.

What is covalent character in an ionic bond?
