molecluar These electron pairs are known as shared pairs or bonding pairs, and the stable balance of attractive and repulsive forces between atoms, when they share electrons, is known as covalent bonding. Jonathon P.

Chemical bond A chemical bond is a lasting attraction between atoms, ions or molecules that enables the formation of chemical compounds. They are oxidised to sulfuric acid or sulfate by accepting another oxygen atom.

James Morgan, Justin M. Uses[ edit ] Aqueous solutions of sulfur dioxide, which sometimes are referred to as sulfurous acid, are used as ionuc agents and as disinfectants, as are solutions of bisulfite and sulfite salts.
The Journal of Chemical Physics2 The bond may result from the electrostatic force of attraction between oppositely charged ions as in ionic bonds; or through the sharing of electrons as in covalent milecular. Franke, W. The ions are atoms that have gained one or more electrons known as anions, which are negatively charged and atoms that have lost one or more electrons known as cations, which moleculr positively charged.
