2 Electrostatic Attraction Anions and cations cluster together because they are attracted electrostatically The clusters form coordination arrays
3 Ionic Bonding The coordinated ions always cluster about the coordinating ion in such a way that their centers lie at the apices of a polyhedron For bonding that is non-ionic, the same general principles hold
