Class 12 Chemistry The Solid State Ionic Solids

Ionic Solids

  • The constituent particles of these solids are ions.
  • The solid is composed of three dimensional arrangements of cations and anions that are bonded by strong coulombic (electrostatic) forces.
  • These solids are hard and brittle in nature and have high melting and boiling points.
  • They are electrical insulators in solid state due to the absence of movement of free electrons but are good conductors in molten state due to the movement of ions.
