    • Structure and Bonding
      • Chemical Bonding
        • Elements react to form compounds by gaining/losing electrons
        • Atoms in Group 1 combine with atoms in Group 7 to form ions
      • Ionic Bonding
        • Held together by strong forces
        • Ions form a giant structure called a lattice
      • Formulae of Ionic Compound
        • Charges on the ions in ionic compounds always cancel each other out
        • Formula shows the ratio of ions present
      • Covalent Bonding
        • Formed when 2 atoms share a pair of electrons
        • Number of covalent atoms formed depends on number of electrons needed to achieve a stable electronic structure
        • Most contain simple molecules, but some have giant covalent structures
      • Metals
        • Atoms in metals are closely packed and arranged in regular layers
        • Electrons in the highest energy level are delocalised. Strong electrostatic forces between the electrons and positive ions hold the metal together
