Difference between ion and ionic compound
« on: February 27, 2019, 02:23:09 AM »

What is the difference? Does ion only refer to a cation or anion, while ionic bonded elements are called ionic compounds instead of ions?

An ion is a charged species either +ve cation or -ve anion. 

An ionic compound is made from at least two different groups of ions and the net charge = 0.

Can you give an example of what you mean?
