What type of compounds are usually formed between metals and non-metals and why?
Electrovalent compounds are usually formed between metals and non-metals.
Atoms of metallic elements that have 1, 2 or 3 valence electrons can lose an electron(s) to atoms of non-metallic elements that have 5, 6 or 7 valence electrons and thereby form an electrovalent bond.
Concept: Electrovalent (or Ionic) Bond
