Ionic Bonding

Curriculum support20 mins£2.50

Key takeaways
An overview of how ionic bonds are formed by the transfer of electrons 
An understanding of how compounds are formed and the naming conventions of new compounds (oxides, nitrates, sulfates etc )
An explanation of the structure of an ionic compound as a lattice structure
Laura LewisHost: Laura studied at Royal Holloway University of London and the Open University. She is passionate about science communication and has presented talks about Exoplanets at Oxford University and Imperial College London.

In this class, we will be looking at how metallic elements form ionic bonds by the transfer of electrons and how we name the new ionic compounds. We will then look at the explanation of ionic compound lattice structures. 

This chemistry class is perfect for students who may have studied Ionic Bonding at school but would like a refresh to cement their understanding and to remember the names of the new compounds.  

Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.

Suitable for:

This class is suitable for all ages, especially for students in Years 10 -11 or S4-S5.  This can be one of the most challenging topics in Chemistry, this class is perfect to go over the theory once more. 

Class requirements:

Students will require a laptop with internet connection to view the class. A pen and notepad will also be required during the lesson.
