ionic bond

[ī′än·ik ′bänd]
(physical chemistry)
A type of chemical bonding in which one or more electrons are transferred completely from one atom to another, thus converting the neutral atoms into electrically charged ions; these ions are approximately spherical and attract one another because of their opposite charge. Also known as electrovalent bond.
