1. Ionic bonds result from transfer of electrons, whereas covalent bonds are formed by sharing.

2. Ionic bonds are electrostatic in nature, resulting from that attraction of positive and negative ions that result from the electron transfer process; charge separation between covalently bonded atoms is less extreme.
