Mary J. Bojan Chem 110 Sharing of electrons in bonds is not always equal Covalent bond identical atoms: N 2 Cl 2 H 2 Polar bond different atoms: + ί→ H ί Cl δ + δ Bond type is determined by differences in electronegativity ( Δ EN). large difference: ionic Na + Cl 0.93 3.2 Δ EN = intermediate values: polar covalent H — Cl 2.2 3.2 Δ EN = no difference: covalent Cl — Cl approximate cutoff: Δ EN 2.0 ionic Δ EN < 2.0 covalent 2
