CO is polar because atoms of different electronegativities are sharing electrons in a covalent bond. Oxygen exerts a greater pull on the shared electrons than carbon does. Therefore, the oxygen side of the molecule becomes slightly negative and the carbon side of the molecule becomes slightly positive.
