In chemistry, ionic is the property of a chemical that its molecules or atoms are ions or are like ions, i.e. have a surplus (positive) or deficit (negative) (but not an equilibrium) of electric charge, which is the result of adding or removing an electron to the outermost electron shell of the atom or molecule.
