It is said that larger the size of anion,the covalent character in the ionic bond increases.THEN what IF THE size of anion smaller?PLZZ ELABORATE
Asked by Anagha Plus two | 27th Sep, 2011, 05:06: PM
Larger the size of anion, more is the covalent character in the ionic bond because a large size anion can be polarised to a greater extent by the cation. so covalent character of the ionic bond increases.
But if the size of anion is smaller, its polarisation decreases and covalent character also decreases.
