Ionic compounds

Structure Ionic compounds have regular structures (giant ionic lattices) in which there are strong electrostatic forces in all directions between oppositely charged ions. Examples of such crystals are the alkali metal halides (e.g. potassium chloride, sodium fluoride, sodium chloride) The exact arrangement of ions in an ionic lattice varies according to the size of the ions in the solid. Example NaCl Each Na+
