There are 3 types of bonds: Ionic, Metallic, and Covalent.
Combination of a metal and a nonmetal
Falls between 1.7- 3.3 on the Electronegativity Difference Scale
Characteristics: Dissolves in water, high melting temperature, doesn't conduct in solids, but conducts in liquids and dissolved.
Combination of a metal and metal
Characteristics: shiny, doesn't dissolve, high melting point, always conducts electricity
Combinations of a nonmetal and a nonmetal
Nonpolar Covalent fall between 0.0 and 0.3 on the Electronegativity Difference Scale
Polar Covalent fall between the 0.3 and 1.7 on the Electronegativity Difference scale
Characteristics: sometimes dissolves doesn't, low melting point, never conducts electricity
