1

Ionic bonding

The electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions.

2

Covalent bonding

A bond formed by a shared pari of electrons

3

Dative covalent bond

A shared paired of electrons which has been provided by one of the bonding atoms only.

4

Electronegativity

A measure of the attraction of a bonded atom for the pair of electrons in a covalent bond.

5

Hydrogen bonding

A strong dipole-dipole attraction between an electron-deficient hydrogen atom on one molecule and a lone pair of electrons on a highly electronegative atom on a different molecule.

6

Metallic bonding

The electrostatic attraction between positive metal ions and delocalised electrons.
