Ionic compounds are between metals and non-metals. Molecular (covalent) compounds are between only non-metals. (Metallic compounds are between metals and other metals.)
An ionic compound is a pure substance that is formed from a metal and a nonmetal. It has a fairly high melting point and is a conductor of electricity when in a molten or aqueous state.
A molecular compound, on the other hand, is a pure substance that is formed from nonmetals. It has a fairly low melting point, and cannot conduct electricity regardless of state.
Another important difference between the two is that an ionic compound is a crystalline solid at standard temperature and pressure (STP), whereas a molecular compound can be in a solid, gas or liquid state at STP.
Molecular compound is derived from combinations of different molecules while ionic compound is derived from inducing electrical current into molecules.
if the compound contains a metal bonded to a nonmetal, it is most likely an ionic compound. It the compound contains two nonmetals, it is a molecular compound.
