QUESTION

# What is the ionic bond formation of Beryllium and Oxygen?

Beryllium oxide.

The ionic compound containing beryllium and oxygen is beryllium oxide. The beryllium ion has a charge of "2"^+" and has the symbol "Be"^(2+)". The oxide ion has a charge of "2"^-" and has the symbol "O"^(2-)". The formula unit for beryllium oxide is "BeO".

BeO can be produced by the reaction between beryllium and oxygen. In this reaction, each Be atom loses its two valence electrons to O atoms, forming "Be"^(2+)" ions and "O"^(2-)" ions. The electrostatic attraction between the oppositely charged ions forms the ionic bond. "2Be" + "O"_2" rarr "2Be"^(2+)" + "2O"^(2-)" rarr "2BeO".

Note: BeO forms a crystal lattice with covalent character, and has an intermediate ionic-covalent character.http://www.docbrown.info/page07/ASA2ptable4b.htmhttp://www.docbrown.info/page07/ASA2ptable4.htm
