Non-Polar Bonds

Postby EmilyC_3D » Sat Nov 21, 2020 5:27 pm

I know that Dr. Lavelle mentioned that C-H is generally considered a non-polar bond due to similarities in electronegativity. Are there any other bonds that we should try to memorize as being non-polar? Thank you!

Hydrocarbons are typically nonpolar, and molecules that have cancelling dipole moments are also nonpolar. It would be much more efficient to know how to draw the lewis structures and the dipole moments to know which cancel out.

Based on the textbook and lectures, we should know that homonuclear diatomic molecules, benzene, methane, ethylene, and most organic molecules are non polars.

Keep in mind that though some molecules have polar bonds, these molecules can be non polar still based on their shape.
