Unformatted text preview: You do it! Formation of Ionic Compounds The remainder of the IIA metals and VIIA nonmetals react similarly. Symbolically this can be represented as: M (s) + X 2 M 2+ X 2-M can be any of the metals Be to Ba. X can be any of the nonmetals F to Cl. Formation of Ionic Compounds For the reaction of IA metals with VIA nonmetals, a good example is the reaction of lithium with oxygen. The reaction equation is:...
