A chemical bond is identified with the electrostatic flux (Section 2.2) linking two atoms. Combined with the principle of maximum symmetry, the theorems of classical electricity yield and extend the rules of both the covalent (Section 2.3.6) and the ionic (Section 2.3.4) models. They provide quantitative predictions of structure, geometry and chemical properties of both ionic and covalent compounds (Sections 2.3.4–2.3.7).

Keywords:   bond, flux, covalent, ionic, symmetry
