There are 4 main types of structures in chemical bonding and they are broadly classified as having either strong or weak bonds.
|Strong bonds||Weak bonds|
|Giant metallic lattice structure||Giant ionic lattice structure||Giant covalent structure||Simple molecular structure|
The giant metallic lattice structure and giant ionic lattice structure are essentially a similar type of system where the lattice is held together by electrostatic forces of attraction between oppositely charged particles.
Next, we will examine some of the bonding within simple molecular structures in greater detail.
