Ionic bonding: a summary

Ionic bonding:

  • is the transfer of electrons
  • takes place between metals and non-metals


Ionic substances:

  • exist as solids (crystals) at room temperature
  • dissolve in water
  • conduct electricity, when dissolved in water


Because salt (sodium chloride) is an ionic compound, when you come across ionic bonding, think of salt.
