4.5 Metallic bonding

Metallic Bonding Metals have low ionization energies, so valence electrons can be delocalized throughout metal. Structure of metal is a giant lattice of positive ions (cations) surrounded by “sea” of delocalized electrons Metallic Bond: the electrostatic attraction between a lattice of positive ions (cations) and delocalized electrons Strength of metallic … Continue reading 4.5 Metallic bonding
