Chemical bonding is helpful in prediction of various aspects of the substance like :-

  1. Melting points, generally the ionic compounds are having high melting points and covalent compounds are having low m.p.
  2. State , generally ionic compounds are crystalline solids, but covalent compounds are found mostly in all states.
  3. Generally the reactions of covalent compounds are very slow as compared to the ionic compounds.
  4. Covalent compounds are poor conductors of the electricity, but ionic compounds are good conductors of electricity in aqueous solution or in molten state.
  5. Ionic compounds can be dissolved in water but covalent compounds cannot be dissolved in water.
