chemical bond formed between two atoms as a result of the transfer of one or
more electrons from one atom to the other is called ionic bond. Such a bond is
possible only between atoms of different nature, one atom should have the tendency
to lose electron or electrons and other atom should have the tendency to accept
electron or electrons.
Ionic bond is possible between dissimilar atoms i.e., on electropositive and
other electronegative atom while the covalent bond is possible between similar
as well as dissimilar atoms.
Ionic bond is non-rigid and non-directional. It does not show isomerism while
covalent bond is rigid and directional and can cause space isomerism.
