This video is an introduction to ionic bonding, which is one type of chemical bonding. Ionic bonds hold together metal and nonmetal atoms. In ionic bonding, electrons are transferred from a metal atom to a nonmetal atom, creating ions. These ions have opposite charge, so they stick together.

In this video, we continue exploring ionic bonding, this time looking at the properties of ionic compounds. First we look at how ionic compounds form a giant ionic lattice and then we look at why they have high melting and boiling points and why they cannot conduct electricity as solids but can when they are molten or dissolved in water.
