Electrovalency and Covalency

Electrovalency and Covalency

Hi viewers: Here we will discuss about the very basic ideas about Electrovalency and Covalency. Electrovalency The valency of the elements which enable them to combine with one another through direct transfer of electrons and to form ions in order to get  the electronic configuration of inert gases and are held together by electrostatic force of attraction is known as electrovalency or ionic valency   Electrovalent compound It is formed by transfer of electron It is an electrolyte It ionizes in aqueous solution or molten state Melting points and boiling points are very high If it dissolves, it dissolves in water     Covalency The valency of the elements which enable them to combine with one another through mutual sharing of electron pairs in order to attain the electronic structure of inert gases, to form a molecule is known as covalent bond   Covalent compound It is formed by mutual sharing of electrons It is non-electrolyte It does not ionizes in aqueous solution Melting points and boiling points are very low ...
