ionic bond
In sodium chloride, a sodium atom (Na) donates an electron to a chlorine atom (Cl), forming an ionic bond.

ionic bond

A chemical bond between two ions with opposite charges, characteristic of salts. Also called electrovalent bond.

ionic bond

(Chemistry) another name for electrovalent bond

ion′ic bond′

the electrostatic bond between two ions formed through the transfer of one or more electrons.

i·on·ic bond

A chemical bond formed between two ions with opposite charges. Ionic bonds form when one atom gives up one or more electrons to another atom. These bonds can form between a pair of atoms or between molecules and are the type of bond found in salts. See more at bond, coordinate bond, covalent bond.
