Hydrogen Bonding

Postby Lilyana Villa 1J » Sun Nov 24, 2019 11:20 pm

Okay so I'm confused about hydrogen bonding sites. For example, if a nitrogen was already bonded to a hydrogen but still had a lone pair of electrons, would that nitrogen still be considered a hydrogen bonding site for a new hydrogen bond or would it not since it is already bonded to a hydrogen?

A lone pair is a potential site for hydrogen bonding. Hydrogen bonding can also be possible when hydrogen is near a nitrogen, oxygen, or fluorine atom.

Every lone pair on an electronegative N, O, or F is considered a hydrogen bonding site, so if an N that has a hydrogen bond with a hydrogen still has a lone pair, then that pair is considered a site for hydrogen bonding.
