# Lithium chloride (LiCl) is what type of bond?

If you look on the periodic table, $\text{Li}$ is on the first column, which means it is an alkali metal. On the other end, we have $\text{Cl}$ on the second to last column, which means it is a halogen, a nonmetal (in fact it is a gas at room temperature).
A bond between a metal and nonmetal is said to be primarily ionic in nature, or it is said that it has high "ionic character". Therefore, a $\text{LiCl}$ bond is an ionic bond.
