Covalent Bonding
Electrostatic force of attraction of 2 nuclei toward a shared bonding pair of electrons
1 of 7
Disproportionation
When a species is simultaneously oxidised and reduced
2 of 7
Metallic Bonding
Electrostatic force of attraction between the nuclei of metal cations and delocalised electrons
3 of 7
Electronegativity
Relative power of an atom in a molecule to attract a bonding pair of electrons to itself
4 of 7
Oxidation
Is loss of electrons
5 of 7
Oxidising Agent
Accepts electrons (and therefore itself is reduced)
