Coordinate covalent bonds

Postby Bao Tram Nguyen » Sun Nov 10, 2019 9:51 pm

What is the difference between a regular vs a coordinate covalent bond and how do you show that it's a coordinate bond?

Coordinate covalent bonds are where both electrons in the bond are supplied by the same atom, sometimes represented by an arrow drawn from the donator to the receiver instead of a line for regular covalent bonds.

As stated before, a coordinate covalent bond has one atom supplies the electron pair. To add on, this relates to Lewis acids because they accept electrons and Lewis bases donate electrons.

A regular covalent bond is when two atoms both contribute one of their electrons to the bond. A coordinate covalent bond is when only one of the atoms is contributing the electrons to the bond. One example is carbon monoxide (CO) where two of its bonds are regular covalent, but the third is a coordinate covalent bond where the two electrons involved in the bond both come from oxygen.

Coordinate covalent bonds occur between Lewis acids and bases where the bases donate the electron pair to the Lewis acid, causing it to reach an octet.

Do coordinate covalent bonds happen only in transition metals?
And does it occur in all transition metals or are there exceptions?

I think just in transition metal

I understand the coordinate covalent bonds are covalent bonds in which both electrons come from the same atom, but what does the necessarily mean? I do not quite understand what it is stating.
