Hydrogen Bonding

Postby Matthew Chan 1B » Sun Dec 08, 2019 4:11 pm

In water, can SO3 (sulfur trioxide) form hydrogen bonds with the water molecules?

I think so! The oxygens have available lone pairs that could attract the positive dipole of the hydrogens in water. Hydrogen bonding occurs between H and N, O, or F, so I think it's possible.

SO3 can form hydrogen bonds in water because it contains oxygen atoms, which can form a bond with hydrogen atom from the water molecule due to partial charges on the atoms.
