Chapter 7, Problem 7.101PAE
Textbook Problem

7.101 Lead selenide nanocrystals may provide a breakthrough in the engineering of solar panels to be efficient enough to be an economical source of electricity. Selenium is generally considered a nonmetal while lead is considered a metal. Is this distinction enough to suggest that this compound should be ionic? Explain your answer.
