  • Ionic Bonding
    • When metallic elements react with non-metallic elements they produce ionic compounds.
      • The metal atoms lose electrons to form positive ions.
        • The non metallic atoms gain electrons to form positive ions.

              • The non metallic atoms gain electrons to form positive ions.
                • The ions have the electronic structure of a noble gas.
                  • The oppositely charged ions attract to each other.
            • The ions have the electronic structure of a noble gas.
              • The oppositely charged ions attract to each other.
          • Elements in group 1 have one electron in their highest occupied energy level. Forming positive ions during bonding.
          • Elements in group 7 have seven electron in their highest occupied energy level. Forming negative ions during bonding.
            • Elements in group 1 have one electron in their highest occupied energy level. Forming positive ions during bonding.
        • Ionic bonding holds oppositely charged ions together in giant lattice structures.
          • These have strong electrostatic forces of attraction which act in all directions.
            • Each ion is surrounded by ions of the opposite charge therefore making a strong structure.
