  • Some non-metals form giant covalent structures.

 graphite - electrons / pencil / lubricant (strong covalent bonds)

 diamond - used for cutting tools

carbon nanotube - micro electronic

Properties of giant covalent structures:

  • very high melting pint - atoms held together by very stong covalent bonds
  • not all soluble in water
  • graphite &
