  42. ionic bond
    • involves the loss of one or more electrons by one atom and the gain of the electron(s) by another atom(s)
    • ex: NaCl
  43. Covalent bonds

  44. Disulfide bonds
    a covalent bond formed between two atoms of sulfur, usually within the same large protein molecule.
  45. Hydrogen bonds
    does not involve the sharing or exchange of electrons, but rather results because of a property of hydrogen atoms.
