    Polar compound is the molecules which contain polar covalent bonds; they can ionize when dissolved or fused; polar compounds include inorganic acids, bases, and salts. A polar bond is a covalent bond between two atoms where the electrons forming the bond are unequally distributed. This causes the molecule to have a slight electrical dipole moment where one end is slightly positive and the other is slightly negative. Polar bonds are the dividing line between pure covalent bonding and pure ionic bonding. Examples: Water is a polar bonded molecule.
