For exact values you must consult a table, such as one found in a chemistry book.

Flourine (upper right on the Periodic Table) has the highest electronegativity value of 4.0.

Francium (lower left on the periodic table) has the lowest value of 0.7.

As far as general trends go, the closer to fluorine you are the more electronegative the element, and the closer to francium you are the less electronegative the element.

What is electronegativity and its trend on the periodic table?

Electronegativity is the tendency of an element to attract a bonded pair of element towards it. Down a group, electronegativity of the elements decreases. Across a period, electronegativity increases.

Why is the electronegativity of an element important?

The electronegativity of an element is important in figuring out how polar a molecule will be. The higher the electronegativity of an element is compared to another, the more polar the molecule will be. For example, a bond between Flourine and Hydrogen will be very polar, because Flourine has a very high electronegativity, and hydrogen has a very low electronegativity.


Which element of the periodic table has the least electronegativity?

How does a ionic compound form?

An ionic compound forms when atoms of an element of low electronegativity transfer one or more electrons per atom to atoms of an element of high electronegativity. The resulting cations, formed from the atoms of the element of low electronegativity, and anions, formed from the element of high electronegativity, are held together by mutual electrostatic attractions to form the ionic compound.
