Dispersion And Distortion In Decamethylmetallocenes

Bonding between atoms can take a variety of forms, but ionic bonding is conceptually one of the most straightforward. It involves the attraction between positively (cationic) and negatively (anionic) charged ions, such as occurs between sodium ions (Na+) and chloride ions (Cl–) in table salt (NaCl). These bonds are often quite strong (i.e., NaCl is solid), but can be easily disrupted (NaCl dissolves in water easily). In general, the parts of ionically-bonded molecules arrange themselves to maximize the extent of...
