Dot and cross diagrams are simple diagrams which can be drawn to show the arrangement of the bonding (valency) electrons in the atoms within compounds. Dots and crosses are used to differentiate between the electrons of the different atoms and show their relative positions.


Dot and cross diagrams will, therefore, illustrate whether a compound is ionic - in which case valency electron(s) are completely transferred from one atom to another, resulting in the formation of ions - or covalent, where one or more pair(s) of valency electrons are shared between atoms.


In the diagram on the left, a dot and cross diagram is drawn for carbon dioxide. This shows that this is a covalent compound: each oxygen atom can be seen to have 6 valency electrons (dots), the carbon atom 4 (crosses).


There is a sharing of two electron pairs between each oxygen atom and the carbon atom (one dot and one cross making a pair). The bonding is covalent - the dots and crosses are equally placed between the atoms.
