Best Answer

there are two types of bonds that are non-conductors of electricity, ionic bonds and covalent bonds. covalent bonds occur when one or more pairs of electrons are shared by two atoms. ionic bonds are when one or more electrons from one bond are removed and attached to another, resulting in positive and negative ions that attract each other. the main differnece is that non conductors do not have electrons that can move from nucleus to nucleus, so energy cannot be transfered.
