Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by jess on Saturday, April 4, 2009 at 9:16am.

Many ionic compounds have high melting points because a lot of energy is required to break the strong ionic bonds. So after breaking the ionic bonds, the ionic compound becomes a liquid. How do you explain why the ionic compound also has high boiling point?
