    covalent bonds does not have free moving electrons to conduct electricity as all its electrons Is used for bondong, low melting point is due to weak intermolecular bonding.

    Great! Just a point to take note, the low melting point should be due to weak inter-molecular forces of attractions between the particles instead of bonding.

    Simple molecular structure of covalent compound have a low melting point Due To the Intermolecular Forces Which Are weak . They are the van der waal’s forces and because the are weak and do not require much energy to overcome the forces. Therefore they have a low boiling point. The are unable to conduct electricity because all electrons are being used up for bonding thus there are no mobile electrons hence unable to conduct electricity.
