    Bonds are neither fully ionic nor fully covalent.

    They are dative covalent bonds right?

    Transition metal compounds are confusing, as no two are the same, they're a mix of both ionic and covalent, but formally it is dative as both electrons come from the chloride anion.

    Hi there, i can see where youre coming from, they are both ions. But they are coordinately/ datively bonded. Because if the look up the difinition for ligand, it is a species that can donate a lone pair of electrons to a transition metal ion to form a coordinate bond. Hope this helps
