Coordination Non – metals: Chlorine, Nitrogen, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Sulphur etc.Apart from metals and non-metals
some elements show properties of both metals and non – metals, e.g. Silicon, Arsenic, Germanium

Properties of ionic    
 Physical solid and hard due to strong force of attraction. 
1. :  
nature (generally brittle)
Melting point have high M.P and B.P, as large amount of heat
2. and boiling :   energy is required to break strong ionic
point attraction.

3. Solubility :  
Conduction of ionic compounds in solid state-----does not
4. :  
electricity conduct electricity.
Reason—Ions can not move due to rigid solid structure. Ionic compounds
conduct electricity in molten state.
Reason--  Ions can move freely since the electrostatic forces of attraction
between the oppositely charged ions are overcome due to heat. 2/4
