why does LiCl has covalent bond and not ionic bond?
Asked by anamika09 | 25th Aug, 2010, 02:08: PM
The size of lithium atom and ion is very small so it has high ionization energy and least electropositive character. The polarizing power of Li+ ion is quite high and results in the covalent character of its compounds.
