Is it possible for a polar covalent compound to have a lower melting point than a non-polar covalent compound?

It is not possible for the polar covalent compound to have a lower melting point than the non-polar covalent compound because they have ionic bonds.


Who has higher melting points ionic compounds or covalent compounds?

Ionic compounds have higher melting points than covalent compounds. Common table salt, sodium chloride, is an ionic compound and has a melting point of 801 oC. Table sugar, sucrose, a covalent compound, has a melting point of about 186 oC.


Is a solid with a melting point of 800 degrees Celsius ionic or molecular?

The melting point of a compound cannot determine the bonding structure. As an example, both diamond and sodium chloride have higher melting points than 800 centigrade but are covalent and ionic compounds respectively.


Why the melting and boiling point of covalent compound are low?

Compared to ionic compounds, covalent compounds have relatively low melting and boiling points because covalent bonds are not as strong as ionic bonds, and it is the bonds which hold materials together in the solid, or more solid phases.


What is the melting point for covalent?

Covalent bonds do not melt. Compounds with covalent bonds melt and the melting point depends primarily on whether there are discrete molecules held together by intermolecular forces (which have lower melting points) or giant covalent networks such as in silica or diamond (which tend to have higher melting points).

Why is the melting point of sodium chloride is much higher than that of aluminium tetrachloride?

Sodium chloride is an ionic compound whereas AlCl3 is a covalent compound. Ionic compounds have greater melting point due to stronger electrostatic force of attraction.

What has a lower melting point than ionic solids?

Covalent compounds have a lower melting point.


Would metals or non metals tend to have a higher melting point?

Tungsten has the highest melting point of the elements and it is a metal.


What properties is not a property of metals?

Low Melting Point. Most metals have high melting point and are solids at room temperature.


Why silve iodideAgI a compound used in photography has much higher melting point than vanillin c8h8O3 a sweet smelling compound used in flavorings?

Silver iodide is an ionic compound, whereas vanillin is a covalent compound. The bonds between atoms are much stronger in ionic compounds, so the melting point is higher in AgI.
