What are some examples of ionic compounds?
Ionic compounds can be identified by the difference in electronegativity of each atom. When the difference in electronegativity is
E.g. for sodium chloride which consists of sodium ions and chloride ions. Here the electronegativity of sodium is
Giving an ionic bond.
An easy way to see what atoms rather would form ionic bonds is to identify its position in the ptable. If its a metal it would have a low electronegativity and if its an halogen it would have a high electronegativit.
