Sodium an fluorine unnergangin a redox reaction tae form sodium fluoride. Sodium loses its ooter electron tae gie it a stable electron configuration, an this electron enters the fluorine atom exothermically. The oppositely charged ions – teepically a great mony o them – are then attractit tae each ither tae form a solid.

Ionic bondin is a teep o chemical bond that involves the electrostatic attraction atween oppositely charged ions.
