A Visual Periodic Table
A very complete resource for the Periodic Table from WebElements
An ionic bond (or electrovalent bond) is a type of chemical bond that can often form between metal and non-metal ions (or polyatomic ions such as ammonium) through electrostatic attraction. In short, it is a bond formed by the attraction between two oppositely charged ions.
The metal donates one or more electrons, forming a positively charged ion or cation with a stable electron configuration. These electrons then enter the non metal, causing it to form a negatively charged ion or anion which also has a stable electron configuration. The electrostatic attraction between the oppositely charged ions causes them to come together and form a bond.
Here you find a video about every element on the periodic table, COOL!

Yes, some of the connections seem quite complex, but while you are reading take note of the simplicity of whole numbers that literally bind life together -
