A Hydrogen Bond is a strong dipole-dipole attraction between an electron-deficient hydrogen atom of -NH, -OH or HF on one molecule, and a lone pair of electrons on a highly electronegative atom containing N, O or F in a different molecule.
A Hydrogen Bond is a type of permanent dipole-dipole interaction found between molecules containing:
- An electronegative atom with a lone pair of electrons - Nitrogen, Oxygen or Fluorine
- A Hydrogen atom attached to an electronegative atom - H-O, H-N, H-F
- The Hydrogen bond usually acts between a lone pair of electrons on an electronegative atom in one molecule, and a Hydrogen atom in a different molecule.
Hydrogen Bonds are the strongest type of intermolecular attractions. When drawing a Hydrogen Bond, you have to:
- Draw the lone pairs on the electronegative…
