Lithium and iodine will form an ionic bond. Metals and nonmetals form ionic bonds.

Is Flouride and Lithium covalent bond or a ionic bond?

When lithium and fluorine react together, they form an ionic compound - lithium fluoride.

Which element would most likely bond with lithium and form an ionic compound?

The elements of the halogen family are more likely to bond with lithium. Chlorine readily combines with lithium to form lithium chloride.

Does lithium and chlorine form a covalent bond?

No. Metals and nonmetals generally form ionic bonds. Lithium is a metal and chlorine is a nonmetal, so an ionic bond forms between lithium and chlorine to form the ionic compound lithium chloride (LiCl).

What type of bond is created between lithium and bromine?

Lithium and bromine would form an ionic bond, where the lithium would donate one electron to the bromine.

What type of bond does Li and F form?

They form a chemical bond, an ionic bond, forming Lithium Fluoride, Li+ F-.

Why lithium form covalent compound?

Lithium only form covalent bonds in lithium hydride compound (LiH), but in chloride (LiCl) it is an IONIC bond ( Li+ and Cl- )

Name one element that oxygen would form an ionic bond with?

Oxygen would form an ionic bond with lithium.

Do lithium and calcium form an ionic bond?

No, because they are both metals they form a covalent bond. An ionic bond is when a metal and a non-metal combine.

Can lithium form ionic bond with oxygen?

Yes. Ionic bonds are typically formed between a metal and non metal. Lithium is a metal; O is a non metal. They form an ionic bond.

How many bonds can lithium form with other atoms?

One bond as lithium has only one valence electron.

Why An atom of lithium (Li) forms an ionic bond with an atom of chlorine (Cl) to form lithium chloride. How are the valence electrons of these atoms rearranged to form this bond?

The difference between the electronegativities of lithium and chlorine is big and an ionic bond is formed by electrostatic attraction.

What type of bond do helium normally form?

helium doesnt form bond with other elements

Why lithium and magnesium makes covalent compound?

They do not bond together, and if they does in a critical condition, it would preferably form a metallic bond.

What elements does lithuim bond with ?

Lithium metal reacts vigorously with all the halogens to form lithium halides. So, it reacts with fluorine, F2, chlorine, Cl2, bromine, I2, and iodine, I2, to form respectively lithium(I) fluoride, LiF, lithium(I) chloride, LiCl, lithium(I) bromide, LiBr, and lithium(I) iodide, LiI.

Why won't sodium and lithium form an ionic bomd?

An ionic bond occurs between a metal and a non-metal. Both lithium and sodium are metals. Therefore, they do not, nor will they ever bond to form an ionic compound. Both atoms look to lose their outer electron, their for making a bond improbable.

Which atom will form an ionic bond with a Br atom?

Any metals in the reference table can form an ionic bond with a Br atom.For example, Lithium, Sodium and Calcium.

Does lithium bromide have an ionic or covalent bond?

Lithium bromide is held together by an ionic bond. We know that lithium is a Group 1 Alkali Metal, and bromine is a Group 17 Halogen. These two groups always form ionic bonds when they get together. You can bet the house on it.

Why doesn't sodium and lithium form an ionic bond?

They both form positive Ions meaning that they wont be attracted to each other
