The forces associated with ionic bonding thus involve the direct attraction between ions of opposite charge. Multiple ions typically form into compounds composed of crystalline or orderly lattice-like arrangements that are held together by large interatomic forces. The positive and negative ions form into specific structures whose geometry depends on the elements bonded (crystalline structures are discussed in more detail below). Common table salt or sodium chloride (NaCl) has an ionic bond, as do metal oxides.

A material like diamond, with strong interatomic and intermolecular forces, 38 Fundamental characterizations of materials Smart Materials and New Technologies is not only one of the hardest materials in existence, but also has an extraordinarily high melting point. Besides strength, commonly recognized as intrinsic are a material’s mechanical properties, including elastic modulus, and toughness, its physical properties, including conductivity, specific heat and density, and its chemical properties, including reactivity, valence and solubility.

A change in this distance changes the energy of the molecule, which in this case produces elastic energy – strain. This strain deforms or changes the shape of the material. With Type 2 materials, however, we should be aware that use of the term ‘material’ here can be slightly misleading. Many of the ‘materials’ in this class are actually made up of several more basic materials that are constituted in a way to provide a particular type of function. A thermoelectric, for example, actually consists of multiple layers of different Materials in architecture and design 17 Smart Materials and New Technologies materials.
