How does H2+ exist?

Postby Joseph Nguyen 3L » Mon Nov 07, 2016 11:32 pm

How does a molecule exist with a 1/2 bond order? Conceptually, how is a bond kept stable if it only has 1/2 of a bond? And how does it even bond together?

From my understanding, an element with a bond order of 0 cannot exist but those with fractional values exist and are not stable.
