Metallic Bond


a type of bond between atoms in crystalline materials that are metallic in nature (metals and intermetallic compounds). The metallic bond results from a high concentration of quasi-free electrons in the materials (conduction electrons). The negatively charged electron gas “bonds” the positive ions to one another.
