Hydrogen Bonding

Postby TanveerDhaliwal3G » Sun Nov 10, 2019 9:37 pm

The book says that hydrogen bonding is the strongest type of intermolecular forces but isn't it weaker than covalent and ionic bonds?

Covalent and Ionic bonds are intramolecular forces, meaning that they occur between atoms within a molecule. On the other hand, Van Der Waals Forces, Dipole-Dipole Forces, and Hydrogen Bonding are intermolecular forces, meaning that they occur between molecules.

Hydrogen bonds are the strongest intermolecular bonds which is why water has such a high boiling point.

H bonds are the strongest intermolecular force because of the great electronegativity difference between Hydrogen and NOF

it's the difference between INTRAmoleculer and INTERmolecular

They are the strongest intermolecular bonds but no stronger than ionic or covalent bonds.

Could a bond between something lower down in the same group as H form an intramolecular bond stronger than a hydrogen-bond? B/c of lower electronegativity?
