Chapter 5 Lecture Notes CHEM 1030 Rik Blumenthal Ionic Compounds and Ionic Bonding o Ionic compounds form when cations (atoms with positive charge) and anions (atoms with negative charge) combine. Ex. NaCl Na (sodium) is a cation Cl (chlorine) is an anion When combined, the single electron from sodium completely transfers to chlorine, a process called ionization o Ionic compounds denoted in chemical formulas (show elements in ration in which they combine) Ex. Li + O L2 O Notice that Li has one valenc
