Chemical Bonds: The result of electrons from different atoms interacting with each other by Mind Map: Chemical Bonds: The result of electrons from different atoms interacting with each other

1. Ionic Bonds: when one or more electrons are transferred between atoms

1.1. Formed between metals and nonmetals

1.2. Example: NaCL sodium chloride, or table salt

1.3. Conduct electricity and have high melting points

2. Covalent bonds: electrons between atoms are shared

2.1. Can have equal and unequal pull on electrons depending on the electronegativity of the atoms.

2.2. Polar covalent bond have atoms with different pulls on the valence electrons

2.3. Formed between two nonmetals
