The process in which an atom either gains or loses one or more electrons. Atoms in their elemental state are electrically neutral; they have an equal number of positively charge protons and negatively charged electrons. Ionisation alters the electron-proton balance of an atom resulting in a negatively charged atom when it gains electron(s) or a positively charged atom when it loses electron(s).
