Covalent Bonds

Postby thanh24mai » Sun Oct 27, 2019 3:17 pm

Just making sure, covalent bonds can only be formed by nonmetals?

Yes covalent bonds form when electrons are shared between two nonmetals.

Yes nonmetals are more likely to form covalent bonds.

Indeed, and covalent bonds are different than ionic bonds because electrons are shared between the non-metals.

Covalent bonds can only be formed by nonmetals, and metals are more likely to form ionic bonds. Remember that metals often times become cations because it is easier for them to give up electrons. Non metals have high ionization energy.

Nonmetals can also form ionic bonds, right?

An ionic bond is typically between a metal and a nonmetal since metals form cations whereas nonmetals form anions.

ionic bonds are characterized as a bond between a metal and a nonmetal, whereas covalent bonds are bonds between two nonmetals.

Correct, covalent bonds occur between two non-metals. This differs from the metal-nonmetal ionic bonds.
