Does ionisation occur only in polar covalent molecules or in both polar and non- polar covalent molecules?

Expert Answer:

Ionisation occurs in polar covalent compounds, It does not occur in non-polar covalent compounds. The reason behind ionisation is the separation of charge, In non-polar compounds, There is an unequal distribution of charge according to electronegativity difference. In non-polar compounds, there is no charge separation so ionisation is not possible.
