An is a chemical bond between two atoms in which one atom seems to donate its electron to another atom. , on the other hand, appear to involve two atoms sharing electrons reach a more stable electron configuration. Some compounds contain both and . These compounds contain . Many of these compounds contain a metal, a nonmetal, and also hydrogen. However, other examples contain a metal joined via an ionic bond to covalently bonded nonmetals.
Here are examples of compounds that exhibit both types of chemical bonding:
NaNO3 , (NH4)S , CaCO3 , KNO2 , K2SO4
