I would say that the water; the water is very polar, and this is the reason why you can break one of the strongest bonds, ionic bonds. NaCl, as you probably know, is a salt, and dissolves in the water. However, the ionic bond holding Na+ and Cl - is very strong; the boiling point of NaCl is 1413 degrees celsius, and water at 100 degrees celsius). This means that it requires A lot of energy to break the bond, but the water is able to dissolve and break the link very easily. It is very polar, so I would like to respond to your question with water. And the link that connects the H and the O is a covalent bond.
