It's not only opposites that attract

My latest news article for Nature is here – it was altered very little in the editing, so I shan’t include the original. Was this problem really not put to bed in the nineteenth century? Apparently not. But an awful lot gets forgotten in the annals of science…

Just like the concept of polarizability- but that only applies to covalent compounds, not ionic ones.

Interesting- the overlap between the ionic bonding concept and covalent bonding concept. One I thought was two separate types of bonding.
