Two metals X and Y form covalent halides. Both halides can act as Lewis acids and a catalyst in Friedel Crafts reaction. Halide of X is polymer in the solid state and a dimer in the vapour state which decomposes to monomer at 1200 K. However, halide of Y is a dimer in vapour state and becomes ionic in polar solvent. X and Y are respectively.
