Is the composition of an ionic compound formed by two or more nonmetallic elements?

Ionic compounds do not form between nonmetallic elements. Nonmetallic elements form covalent bonds, and form molecular compounds. Ionic compounds are generally formed by metals and nonmetals.

What kinds of elements combine to form ionic compounds?

ionic compounds form between metals and non-metals.

What families tend to form ionic compounds?

Most of the metals tend to form the ionic compounds. compounds of s-block elements are most ionic. Also, non-metals mostly halogens form ionic compounds.

What types of elements form covalent compounds and what types of elements form ionic compoundsypes?

Nonmetals form covalent bonds with one another, forming molecular compounds. Metals and nonmetals tend to form ionic compounds.

What elements form ionic compounds?

How do elements join to from compounds?

Elements make bonds to form compounds. These bonds can be ionic or covalent. Elements share electrons to form bonds.

Are sodium and magnesium are ionic or non ionic?

What type of elements are simple ionic compounds made of?

ionic compounds are made up of elements that form ions. It could be either cation or anion

Will sodium and sulfur form ionic compounds?

Yes. These two elements alone will form ionic sodium sulfide, and together with oxygen they can form several other ionic compounds such as Na2SO4.

What groups of elements always combine to make ionic compounds?

All metals combine to form ionic compounds.Group 1(except hydrogen),2-12, all elements form ionic compounds.then Group 13 (except Boron), Group 14-tin and lead and Group 15 Bismuth only.The above mentioned group elements form ionic compounds.

What elements are in ionic compounds?

Ionic compounds only occur between a nonmetal and metal, also Halogens and The Carbon Family do not form Ionic bonds.

What compounds forms an ionic bond?

The elements that generally form ionic bonds are the metals and nonmetals.

What elements do nonmetals react with?

Nonmetals may react with metal to form ionic compounds (salts) or other nonmetal elements to form organic compounds.

What is the force that keeps ionic compounds together?

The combining of elements to form compounds through a shift of electronic structure. (ionic bonding)

How do elements join to form compound?

Elements can form compounds by sharing electrons, forming molecular compounds, or by transferring electrons from one element to another, forming ionic compounds.

Can someone make as many ionic and polyatomic compounds with hydrogen nitrogen oxygen chlorine sodium and calcium?

- If you think only to isolated elements all these elements can form polyatomic compounds.- Calcium and sodium form ionic compounds.- H, N, O, Cl can form ionic or covalent compouds.

Why do elements pair together to form compounds?

Compounds are formed by ionic or covalent bonds between atoms.

What ionic compounds and covalent compounds does argon form?

Argon is chemically inert due to the presence of completely filled orbitals. It does not react with other elements and hence does not form ionic or covalent compounds at STP.

What sorts of elements react to form ionic compounds?

highly electropositive elements react with highly electronegative elements to form ionic compounds. The former forms cations and the latter forms anions and the force of attraction between the positively charged cation and the negatively charged anion is the ionic bond.

Why do elements form ionic or covalent compounds?

Elements form ionic or covalent compounds depending upon their valency. for example :- All metals form ionic compounds generally as they are easily able to loose their electrons. Many non-metals gain these electrons and form ionic compound with the metals. But many non-metals form covalent compounds by sharing their valence electrons with other non-metals. Most prominent being the carbon atom. Its very difficult for a carbon atom to gain or loose four electrons in its valence shell to form ionic compounds. So, it forms covalent compounds by sharing its four electrons with other elements.
