  • Ionic Bonding
    • Between metal atom and non-metal atom
    • Transfer of electrons from one atom to the other
    • Atoms that lose electrons become positively charged
      • Atoms that gain electrons become positively charged
    • Atoms in Groups 1-3 will lose electrons
      • Atoms in groups 6-7 will  gain electrons
    • High boiling and melting points
      • Giant structures held together by strong forces of attraction.
    • Have no overall charge- total positive charge must equal the total negative charge in any sample of any ionic compound
