Chemical bonding is when two or more elements/compounds combine to make a differnt element.
e.g. in this case the hydrogen (H) atoms have bonded with the carbon (C) atoms
- The transfer of electrons between atoms
- occurs between metals and non-metal
- high boiling point
- strong electrostatic forces of attraction between oppositly charges ions
- giant ionic lattice (atoms are formed in layers)
- are a solid at room temperature
