Covalent Crystals

  Learning Objective Discuss the properties of covalent crystals or network solids Key Points Covalent (or network) solids are extended-lattice compounds, in which each atom is covalently bonded to its nearest neighbors. Because there are no delocalized electrons, covalent solids do not conduct electricity. The rearranging or breaking of covalent bonds requires large amounts of … Continue reading Covalent Crystals
