Does a coumpound that has N,O, or F with a Hydrogen atom always have to have a hydrogen bond? Is there a way where the conditions for a hydrogen bond are present except the compound or molecule does not form a hydrogen bond?
Hello, compounds with Hydrogen bonded to N, O, F always have a hydrogen bond due to the high electronegativity from the anions. The electrons are pulled toward the anion and create a partial positive on the hydrogen atom. The partially positive hydrogen bond the bonds to the partially negative anion.
In terms of covalent, ionic, and hydrogen bonds which is the strongest and why? I would think ionic but I can see how hydrogen bonds are stronger since they are easily attracted to high electronegative elements.
Hydrogen bonding is another way of saying there is a strong dipole-dipole attraction between two molecules, but because the electronegativity between these atoms are larger than a normal dipole moment, we call them hydrogen bonding, which is the strongest intermolecular force.
