Q
Metals and Non-metals

Question:

Why do ionic compounds have high melting points?

Answer:

The ionic compounds are made up of cation and anion. These ions are held together by strong inter-ionic attraction. So, a large amount of heat is required to disrupt these attractions. That is why ionic compounds have high melting points.
