Hydrogen Bonding

Postby Amina Durrani 3G » Sat Nov 16, 2019 12:52 pm

Is Hydrogen Bonding only present in molecules with N,O,F atoms or are there other atoms that also hydrogen bond?

Hydrogen bonding occurs with other atoms that have a high electronegativity. Nitrogen, oxygen, and fluorine are the usually the only ones that hydrogen reacts with since they are so electronegative.

Remember that hydrogen bonds do not occur within a single molecule rather they are present when multiple molecules with hydrogen atoms bonded to highly electronegative atoms (N, O, F) are next to each other.
