Best Answer

A binary covalent compound is one that contains two substances joined by covalent bonds. For example, two nonmetals often join together to form covalent compounds. So, P2O5 (phosphorus pentoxide) is a binary covalent compound. H2O (dihydrogen monoxide) is another one.

This is in contrast to binary ionic compounds, which are salts, and are formed by a metal combining with a nonmetal with ionic bonds.
