HideShow resource information
  • Ionic compounds are formed when metals react with non-metals.
  • Metals generally need to lose 1-3 electrons in order to become complete, whereas non-metals require to get electrons in order to become complete.
  • Ions formed are held together by very strong electrostatic forces of attraction between oppositely charge ions, which is a reason why most ionic compounds have very high melting points and boiling points, as it requires a
