Chemistry OCR 1.2.6 Ionic Bonding

HideShow resource information
What is an ionic bond?
the electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions.
1 of 8
What happens during ionic bonding?
Electrons are transferred from the metal to the non-metal. Oppositely charged ions are formed which are bonded together by electrostatic attraction. The metal ion is positive. The non-metal ion is negative.
2 of 8
What is used to show the origin of electrons in chemical bonding?
dot-and-cross diagrams. Dots to show one element, crosses to show another.
3 of 8
What is a giant ionic lattice?
a 3D structure of oppositely charged ions, held together by strong ionic bonds.

What is the 'make up' of a giant ionic lattice?
Each ion is surrounded by oppositely charged ions. These ions attract each other from all directions.

What do all ionic compounds exist as?
Giant ionic lattices in the solid state.
