What type of bond does scandium have?
Hereof, what elements does scandium bond with?
Scandium is very reactive towards the halogens fluorine, F2, chlorine, Cl2 bromine, Br2, and iodine, I2, and burns to form the trihalides scandium(III) fluoride, ScF3 , scandium(III) chloride, ScCl3, scandium(III) bromide, ScBr3, and scandium(III) iodide, ScI3 respectively.
Secondly, why does scandium only form 3+ ions? "Scandium forms the extremely stable Ar electron configuration when it loses 3 electrons, so the 3+ state is strongly favored."
