Coordinate Covalent Bonds

Postby Luis Torres 1C » Thu May 17, 2018 1:48 pm

I know we've somewhat gone over this in class, but could someone explain what exactly is a coordinate covalent bond?

Coordinate covalent bonds are where both of the electrons that form the bond originate from the same atom.

A coordinate bond (also called a dative covalent bond) is a covalent bond (a shared pair of electrons) in which BOTH electrons in one of the shared bonds come from the same atom.

A covalent chemical bond between two atoms that is produced when one atom shares a pair of electrons with another atom that lacks such a pair. Also known as a covalent bond in which both the shared electrons are contributed by one of the two atoms.

How exactly would these bonds happen though? If they both come from the same atom wouldn't that atom want to hold onto the electrons as much as possible? Does it have something to do with periodic trends?
