Hydrogen Bond

Postby Mulin_Li_2J » Thu Jan 09, 2020 2:57 pm

Can there be a hydrogen bond between water and oxygen gas? Though oxygen atoms in oxygen gas do not have a partial charge, they do have lone pairs which a hydrogen atom can get closed to.

I don't think that there would be a hydrogen bond between water and oxygen gas because the two oxygen atoms are equally electronegative.

I don't believe a hydrogen bond could form with an O2 molecule because hydrogen bonds are dipole-dipole interactions and O2, as a linear molecule, does not have a dipole moment.
