Using the Electronegativities we can predict whether a given bond will be non-polar, polar covalent, or ionic.  The greater the difference in electronegativity the more polar the bond. Order the following bonds according to polarity: H-H, O-H, Cl-H, S-H, and F-H.

In practice no bond is totally ionic. There will always be a small amount of electron sharing.

So what is and ionic compound? There's no clear cut line. Therefore we use the following practical definition for  an ionic compound Ionic Compound  is any solid that conducts an electric current when melted or dissolved in water.
