- The definition of ionic bond is when a positively charged ion forms a bond with a negatively charged ions and one atom transfers electrons to another.
An example of an ionic bond is the chemical compound Sodium Chloride.
the chemical bond between two oppositely charged ions formed when one atom transfers electrons to another atom, as in the formation of sodium chloride; electrovalent bond
A chemical bond between two ions with opposite charges, characteristic of salts. Also called electrovalent bond.
In sodium chloride, a sodium atom (Na) donates an electron to a chlorine atom (Cl), forming an ionic bond.
