binary compounds!

based on only differences in
electro negativity, what compounds would be the most strongly ionic of all binary compounds?


The compound consisting of the most electropositive element with the most electronegative. The most electropositive element is at the bottom left of the periodic chart. The most electronegative element is at the top right of the periodic table (excluding the inert gases.) That would be group VIIA (or 17) depending upon the system used.


i'm really stuck on my binary homework..what do i do?
