Asked in Chemical Bonding, Macromolecules
Is there ionic bond in macromolecules?
The framework of macrmolecules is covalent and parts of the macromolecule are ionic. For example there are macromolecules with functional groups that can form ionic bonds- such as ion exchange resins where functional groups include sulfonic acid and carboxylic acid groups. There are also macro molecules that can form netwrok, sheet, or chain anions such as the silcates. ...
