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.

Different molecular forces of protein-protein interactions during heating process contributed to form and maintain the gelation structures, which included ionic bonds, hydrogen bonds and hydrophobic interactions [14].
It promoted the formation of insoluble protein, decreased the amount of ionic bonds, and increased that of nondisulfide covalent bonds and hydrophobic interaction, which would facilitate the formation of gel network structure.

Therefore, if the gel acquires a tiny crack as it stretches, the polyacrylamide grid helps to spread the pulling force over a large area, tugging on the alginate's ionic bonds and unzipping them here and there.
Here we consider ionic bonds, covalent bonds and the concept of the rule-of-two that is central to chemistry.
Ionomers are thermoplastics with reversible crosslinks, created by ionic bonds that link polymer chains together as the melt cools, but unlink again when remelted.
The bridge may also include highly ionic bonds (metal salts) or other bonds with weaker dissociation energies.
In the early 1970s, Holliday (1, 2) defined an ionic polymer as a polymer, either organic or inorganic, that contains both covalent and ionic bonds in its chain or network structure.
