Hydrogen Bonding

Postby Nare Arakelian Dis 3E » Sun Nov 17, 2019 2:42 pm

If a molecule, like NH3 for example, has a hydrogen bonded to an electronegative element does this mean there is hydrogen bonding? or does this hydrogen then have to be bonded to another electronegative atom in order for it to be a hydrogen bond?

Hydrogen bonding occurs when a H is bonded to a small atom that's very electronegative, like N, O, or F. So NH3 can form hydrogen bonds

Hydrogen bonding occurs between molecules with an N-H, O-H, or F-H bond, and doesn't occur within the molecule with this bond. The hydrogen bond forms between the hydrogen of one of these molecules and the electronegative atom of another molecule.

Hydrogen bonding is not the bond between hydrogen and another atom. It is the bond that occurs due to a difference in dipole moments between a partial positive hydrogen and a partial negative N, O, or F.

When hydrogen is bonded to N O or F then that is hydrogen bonding

When H is bonded to any other atoms besides those listed above, what type of IF is present?
