  1. Ion
    An ion is an atom or molecule in which the total number of electrons is not equal to the total number of protons, giving the atom a net positive or negative electrical charge
  2. Chemical bond
    A chemical bond is an attraction between atoms that allows the formation of chemical substances that contain two or more atoms.
  3. Ionic bond
    An ionic bond is a type of chemical bond formed through an electrostatic attraction between two oppositely charged ions
  4. Ionic compound
    In chemistry, an ionic compound is a chemical compound in which ions are held together in a lattice structure by ionic bonds
  5. Molecular compound
    A molecular compound is defined as a compound held together by covalent bonds.
  6. Covalent bond
    A covalent bond is the chemical bond that involves the sharing of pairs of electrons between atoms.
  7. Molecule
    A molecule is an electrically neutral group of two or more atoms held together by covalent chemical bonds.
