bonding pair C-N what is the electronegativity difference and the bond type of C-N
C has an electronegativity value of 2.55 whereas that of N is 3.04. The difference is therefore equivalent to 0.49. If the difference is around 0.4 to 1.7, we consider the bond to be a polar one. ... The triple bond acts as a slightly polar bond and the ionic nature of CN makes it interact with polar solvents like water.
