The forces that hold atoms together within a molecule are called intramolecular forces. Examples of intramolecular forces include ionic bonds, covalent bonds and metallic bonds. Ionic bonds are formed due to the transfer of valence electrons between a metal and nonmetal. Covalent bonds are due to the sharing of valence electrons between two nonmetals. Metallic bonds occur between atoms of metals and produce a sea of electrons.
