bond question

Postby Mallika Singh 1G » Sun Nov 03, 2019 7:36 pm

do coordinate covalent bonds form in nature? are they also more stable than regular bonds?

Coordinate covalent bonds form when an atom gives a lone pair of electrons to a bond. I can't give an example of one forming in nature at the moment, but coordinate covalent bonds are as strong as other covalent bonds.

Yes, they do occur in nature. An example of one in nature is the Carbon-Nitrogen bond in amino acids.

In general I think pretty much all of the stuff we talk about in this class occurs in nature. You can think of bonds as attempts to lower the energy of the atom. If forming a coord. covalent bond brings the atom to a lower energy that it had with a lone pair, it will do it.

They do occur in nature if it requires less energy which is more favorable.

Probably a dumb question, but why does the atom want to lower its energy by creating the bond?
