Ionic compounds conduct electricity when molten or in solution, but not as a solid. They generally have a high melting point and tend to be soluble in water. http://www.biologyfactfinder.com/index.php?q=ionic+bond
the transfer of an electron from one atom to another atom isotop es atoms of the same element that have different numbers of neutrons in the nucleus
A chemical bond in which electrons are transferred from one element to another, creating a cation and an anion which are held together by an electrostatic charge. Metals and non-metals bond together in this fashion, creating salts.
The bond between two ions that results from the force of attraction between particles of opposite charge.
ionically bound; ionic bonding. Compare with covalent bond. An attraction between ions of opposite charge. Potassium bromide consists of potassium ions (K+) ionically bound to bromide ions (Br-). Unlike covalent bonds, ionic bond formation involves transfer of electrons, and ionic bonding is not directional.
The attractive force where the force is due to static attraction.
A chemical bond formed by the electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions.
A molecular bond created by the attraction between ions with opposite charges.
atoms linked together by the attraction of unlike charges.
Cohesion between two atoms, one with a positive charge, the other with a negative charge. One type of noncovalent bond.
the electrostatic attraction that binds oppositely charged ions together
a bond where one atom gives electrons to another
An bond formed by the electro-magnetic attraction between ions of opposite charge.
noncovalent bond between a positively charged ion (cation) and negatively charged ion (anion).
A chemical bond which arises from the electrostatic attraction between positively and negatively charged ions. Usually a strong bond.
ionic bonding: bonding in which one or more electrons are transferred from one atom to another; the electrostatic attraction between ions of opposite charge.
a chemical bond in which one atom loses an electron to form a positive ion and the other atom gains to electron to form a negative ion
a bond formed by the transfer of one or more electrons from an atom with a low electronegativity to an atom with a high electronegativity
a bond in which the electron density in the valence shell is primarily on one of the atoms
a bond that involves the transfer of electrons
a chemical bond between anions and cations in large groups in which electrons are completely given up to other atoms
a chemical bond in which electrostatic attraction links oppositely charged ion s in a chemical compound
a force of attraction that occurs between oppositely charged ions in a compound
an electrical attraction between two oppositely charged atoms or groups of atoms
an electrostatic force of attraction between oppositely charged ions
a type of chemical bond that is formed by the attraction of oppositely charged ions
An ionic bond is produced when electrons are transferred from one atom to another.
A force that holds together two electrically charged atoms (called ions).
a linking together of atoms in such a fashion that one atom gives.
i-ON-ik bond Attraction between oppositely charged ions. 38
The combination of an atom that has a strong tendency to lose electrons with an atom that has a strong tendency to gain electrons, such that the former transfers one or more electrons to the latter and each achieves chemical stability under the octet rule. The atom that loses electrons acquires a positive electric charge and the atom that gains electrons acquires a negative electric charge, so that the resulting compound is electrically neutral.
A chemical bond in which atoms of opposite charge are held together by electrostatic attraction.
a chemical bond formed by the electrostatic attraction between positive and negative ions
The electrical attraction between the oppositely charged ions which are produced when electrons are transferred from one atom to another.
A negative ion bonds to a positive ion joining many atoms together. Ionic bonds are formed by the electrical attraction of atoms which can bring together any number of atoms in any size.
the electrcal attractions between ions of opposite charge in a crystal
A chemical bond resulting chiefly from the electrostatic attraction between positive and negative ions
A bond between two atoms involving a complete transfer of electrons. Usually ionic bonds involve atoms of elements on the far left hand side of the periodic table and atoms of elements near the right hand column of the periodic table.
chemical bond characterized by electrostatic attraction between ions of opposite charge. The formation of an ionic bond involves a complete transfer of electrons between atoms, and can be predicted when one bonding atom has a much higher electronegativity than the other. Compare to covalent bond, hydrogen bond.
An ionic bond forms between two atoms when an electron is transferred from one atom to the other, forming a positive-negative ion pair. Classifying materials
A primary bond arising from the electrostatic attraction between two oppositely charged ions, such as electrostatic painting.
Ionic bonds are a type of chemical bond based on electrostatic forces between two oppositely-charged ions. In ionic bond formation, a metal donates an electron, due to a low electronegativity to form a positive ion or cation. In ordinary table salt, the bonds between the sodium and chlorine ions are ionic bonds.
A bond formed between atoms by electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions.
