What is meant by a coordinate covalent bond?

A coordinate covalent bond, also known as a dative bond or coordinate bond is a kind of 2-center, 2-electron covalent bond in which the two electrons derive from the same atom. The bonding of metal ions to ligands involves this kind of interaction.

How is a coordinate bond formed?

A coordinate bond (also called a dative covalent bond) is a covalent bond (a shared pair of electrons) in which both electrons come from the same atom. In the formation of a simple covalent bond, each atom supplies one electron to the bond - but that does not have to be the case.
