Magnesium oxide has ionic bonds because it is between a Metal (Mg) and a Nonmetal (O) and Magnesium offers 2 of its electrons to Oxygen in order for Oxygen to form a full Octet (8 electrons in the valence).

Lithium chloride is a crystalline ionic compound and has no covalent bonds.


Dihydrogen monoxide, water, is a molecule with covalent bonds.


it is in between covalent and ionic. So it has covalent and ionic bonds. this is because al3+ is a very small element so will share electrons.


no it is ionic, because barium is a metal and oxygen (the "oxide") is a nonmetal. Covalent bonds are between nonmetals and nonmetals.


Two nonmetals = covalent metal + nonmetal= ionic Therefore sodium oxide is formed by ionic bonds, as sodium is a metal and oxygen is a non-metallic element.


The cation,Mg 2+and the anionO 2-form the ionic compoundMgO


The bonding in magnesium metal is known as metallic bond. Metallic bonding is the electromagnetic interaction between delocalized electrons and metallic nuclei within metals. The electrons and the positive ions in the metal have a strong attractive force between them. Therefore metals often have high melting or boiling points. The principle is similar to that of ionic bonds. Magnesium can also do ionic and covalent bonding. e.g. MgO (Magnesium oxide), is an example for ionic bonding and MgCl (Magnesium Chloride), is an example for covalent bonding.
