A nonpolar molecule has no separation of charge, so no positive or negative poles are formed. In other words, the electrical charges of nonpolar molecules are evenly distributed across the molecule.
Most hydrocarbons are nonpolar, because
C-H
bonds are nonpolar.
But there are many more organic compounds that contain functional groups likeCl,OH,COOH,C≡N,NH2,NO2, etc.

Examples of homonuclear nonpolar molecules are oxygen (O2), nitrogen (N2), and ozone (O3). Other nonpolar molecules include carbon dioxide (CO2) and the organic molecules methane (CH4), toluene, and gasoline. Most carbon compounds are nonpolar.

Nonpolar molecules tend to dissolve well in nonpolar solvents, which are frequently organic solvents.
In a polar molecule , one side of the molecule has a positive electrical charge and the other side has a negative electrical charge. Polar molecules tend to dissolve well in water and other polar solvents.
There are also amphiphilic molecules, large molecules that have both polar and nonpolar groups attached to them. Because these molecules have both polar and nonpolar character, they make good surfactants , aiding in mixing water with fats.
Technically, the only completely nonpolar molecules consist of a single type of atom or of different types of atoms that display a certain spatial arrangement. Many molecules are intermediate, neither completely nonpolar nor polar.

Non polar covalent bonds have bonds where the electrons are shared more equally between the atoms. This bonding happens with elements that are close in their electronegativity.
The only completely non polar bonds are bonds between the same elements, such as C-C bonds.
