Hydrogen Bonding

Postby Inderpal Singh 2L » Sun Nov 15, 2020 5:56 pm

Will there ever be exceptions to the rule that H-bonding only occurs between H and N, O, or F?

From what I understand there are no exceptions. Hydrogen bonding can occur when ONLY N, O, and F are present. If they are not present, there can not be hydrogen bonding

Not that we'll need to look at I don't think. I looked it up, and the only reason that hydrogen bonding would happen without a N, O, or F molecule is: "C-H bonds only participate in hydrogen bonding when the carbon atom is bound to electronegative substituents as is the case in chloroform, CHCl3".

Hi! I'm pretty sure there are no exceptions.

Hi! I looked it up only just to double check and there are no exceptions! One of them has to be present for hydrogen bonding to occur!!

I believe for what we have learned so far, that hydrogen bonding should only occur between N, O, and F atoms because of their electronegativity.

I think by definition hydrogen bonds only occur with N, O, and F so there shouldn't be any exceptions!

Hi! There are no exceptions, only happens when F, O, N, H are present.

Hi! I don't believe there are any other exceptions to hydrogen bonding to only N, O and F.

I do not think there are any exceptions. I think this is a concrete guideline.

No, Hydrogen bonding can only be between H and F, O, N.

I agree with everyone. I don't think there is an exception.
