An ionic bond is an attraction between ions of opposite charge in an ionic compound. A covalent bond is formed when two atoms share one or more pairs of electrons. Complex biological compounds are formed in large part by atoms that can form one or more covalent bonds: C, H, O, and N. A polar covalent bond is formed by unequal sharing of electrons. Nonpolar bonds exhibit equal sharing of electrons.

■ How is a polar covalent bond different from an ionic bond?
