I would like to know if it is possible for already charged metal ions to become part of a metallic bond.
I was thinking of a possible metallic bond formation with other already charged metal ions or a metallic bond formation between elemental uncharged metal atoms and already charged charged metal ions. By formation a mean the moment before the metallic bond has formed because my understanding is that in a metallic bond there are only charged metal ions and no elemental uncharged metal atoms.
If one of the two scenarios or even both could occur I would assume that the already charged metal ions would form or join a metallic bond by either giving up or donating additional electrons to the so called sea of electrons of a metallic bond or the already charged metal ions would form or join the metallic bond by not giving up additional electrons.
It would be very helpful if someone could provide a link for citation about whether or not charged metal ions can become part of metallic bond since I could not find anything explicitly ruling out that possibility.
