5.5 - Electronegativity
A arbitrary numerical scale of electronegativity
values of most of the elements in the periodic table was developed by Linus
and find the periodic table icon
to obtain electronegativity values for the elements of interest.
Take a look at the general trends in electronegativities.
A high value indicates
that an element has a strong attraction for bonded electrons.
value indicates that an element does not have a strong attraction for bonded
