The electrovalent linkage is present in_______

The electrovalent linkage is present in ionic compounds.

Explanation

Electrovalent linkage is a type of linkage formed from the electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions in a chemical compound.

  • The type of linkage formed from the electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions in a chemical compound.
  • A bond called ionic bond forms when the valence (outermost) electrons of one atom are transferred permanently to another atom.
  • The atom that loses the electrons becomes a positively charged ion which is named as cation, while the one that gains them becomes a negatively charged ion which is named as anion.

Example

Listed below are few compounds that have electrovalent linkage or ionic bond
