Evidence for ‘different bonding’ 1. Melting/Boiling point data 2. No octet bonding 3. Do dissolve readily in water & solutions conduct electricity - in ionic materials e- are transferred -An ion is electrostatically attracted to all near neighbors of opposite charge in its lattice - Ionic bonding – electrons are transferred - Covalent bonding – electrons are shared - H2O has a dipole moment [dipole – atoms do not share electrons equally and electrons spend some of
