chemisty bonding question helpWatch
what is the type of bonding in MgI2 (magnesium iodide), is it ionic with heavy covalent character or is it just covalent? any thoughts/ answers hugely appreciated, thank you!
The ions involved would be Mg2+ and I-
Then to form MgI2 would have to be ionic bonding between the ions. So I would just say ionic bonding which forms an ionic compound.
