General Properties for ionic bonding include...


  • High melting point
  • Soluble in water
  • Conductive in molten state
  • Not conductive in pure state
  • Conductive when mixed in water

Note: THIS IS GENERALLY!! There are always exceptions to some of the rules.

For example, Zinc Oxide is not soluble in water, therefore it is unable to conduct in water.
