Ionic Structures

This page explains the relationship between the arrangement of the ions in a typical ionic solid like sodium chloride and its physical properties - melting point, boiling point, brittleness, solubility and electrical behaviour. It also explains why caesium/cesium chloride has a different structure from sodium chloride even though sodium and caesium/cesium are both in Group 1 of the Periodic Table.
