Thus, both the ionic bond and the covalent bond involve a magnetically bound (anti-parallel spin-aligned) electron pair that is attracted to two positively charged atomic nuclei by Coulomb forces.
The bridge may also include highly ionic bonds (metal salts) or other bonds with weaker dissociation energies.
