Anion A negative ion; an atom or group of atoms that has gained one or more electrons. Bond length Distance between two bond atoms at their lowest potential energy Cation A positive ion; an atom or group of atoms that has lost one or more electrons. Covalent Bond Chemical bond formed by the sharing of one or more electron pairs between two atoms. Covalent Compounds Compounds containing predominantly covalent bonds. Delta ( ) δ Shows partial structural change Diatomic molecule A molecule containing two of the same atom Dipole Refers to the separation of charge between two covalently bonded atoms Dipole-dipole Interactions Attractive interactions between polar molecules, that is, between molecules with
