    Draw out the dot and cross diagram. Usually is when one of the atoms has a minus or plus charge

    When you have a dot and cross diagram, a BONDING pair will consist of two dots or two crosses (indicating that both electrons came from one atom). This is as opposed to normal covalent bonding where you'd have a dot and a cross as part of the covalent bond (1 electron each from both atoms partaking in the bond).

    Hi guys, was wondering if it was possible for a double dative covalent bond to form? For example neon donating two pairs (4 electrons) to oxygen^2+ (6 electrons, 4 electrons in outer shell) to create (NeO)^2+. Thanks
