ionic bond

chemical bond--metals with non-metals

covalent bond

chemical bond--non-metals with non-metals

stable electron configurations

the reason why atoms bond with each other

new compound

the result of the sharing or transferring of electrons between two different types of atoms

ionic compound

molecules that consist of charged ions with opposite charges; usually solids


ion that are electrically charged


positively-charged ion


negatively-charged ion

ionic bonding

transferring of electrons between a metal and a non-metal OR a metal and a polyatomic ion

polyatomic ion

a group of covalently bonded atoms that act as a single ion

ionic substance

composed of a metal and a non-metal or a polyatomic ion (salts)

ionic compound

elements form ions to achieve a stable octet

ionic compound

formed by electrostatic charge

ionic substance

conduct electricity in liquid state, brittle in solid state

ionic compound

multiple charge ionic compound

composed of anions


aren't ionic but share properties with ionic compounds


where 8-12 other atoms closely surround each metal atom--METALS

sea of electrons model

all metal atoms in a metallic solid contribute their valence e-'s to form a sea of e-'s

delocalized electrons

valence electrons that are free to move around

metallic bond

the attraction of a metallic cation for delocalized electrons
