Scandium Sulfide. Would i be correct in thinking that the bonding associated with this compound is Ionic. I think this as the two ions involved are oppositely charged?
If im wrong could you please tell me why. Thanks so Much in Advance.
We generally call those compounds with an electronegativity difference of 1.8 or greater ionic. The difference here is about 1.22 which means a polar covalent bond. http://www.chm.davidson.edu/ronutt/che115/electroneg.htm
