Ionic Bonding

Ionic bonding is the result of an electrostatic attraction between two oppositely charged ions.
Between one metal and one nonmetal.
Metals lose electrons and…

Malleable and ductile because when a blow is given, positive ions are still surrounded by electrons
and the bonds are not broken.
High melting and boiling points because there is a strong attraction between the electrons and
positive ions and this extends through the whole lattice.

Electronegativity is the power of an atom to attract electron density towards itself in a covalent bond.
Electronegativity increases up the group because atoms get smaller, less main levels, less shielding
between the outer electrons and nucleus, and more attractions. The shared electrons are pulled to the

This happens in water where the oxygen is more electronegative than hydrogen and it has a lone pair
of electrons.
They are dipole dipole forces but they are much stronger because of the lone pair and the
hydrogen atoms are small and very electron deficient. The protons are exposed.
