Household Ionic Compounds?


An ionic compound is a chemical compound where ions are held together by ionic bonds. Household ionic compounds are commonly used in chemistry, physics, and chemical engineering. Ionic compounds are found everywhere. You can find them in the home by reading labels and finding sodium and potassium compounds in the ingredients. Some examples for household ionic compounds include citric acid and orange juice, acetic acid and vinegar, sodium fluoride and toothpaste, and sulfuric acid and battery acid.
