A coordinate covalent bond is a covalent bond in which two of the electrons come from a single atom. Hope this helps!

Taken from the textbook, a coordination compound is an electrically neutral compound in which at least one of the ions present is a complex. A complex is a species consisting of a central metal atom or ion to which a number of molecules or ions are attached by coordinate covalent bonds.
