Which are stronger bonds, molecular or ionic and why?

There are exceptiions to every rule. GENERALLY, it takes more energy to break ionic bonds than molecular bonds. GENERALLY, ionic bonded compounds have a very high melting point (NaCl is in the neighborhood of 900o C) but covalently bonded compounds have a much lower melting point (table sugar decomposes about 160o [instead of melting])

?? What component is present in every part of a loop, such as one that involves proteins producing energetic molecules from sugar?
