What is Hydrogen bond -Types of hydrogen bonding with Examples- Digital Kemistry

Hydrogen Bonding

The force of attraction in which hydrogen atom ,which is covalently bonded to a highly electronegative atom in a molecule is attracted by the lone pair electron of another electronegative atom in a nearby molecule is called hydrogen bonding.

Types of Hydrogen Bonding:

There are two types of hydrogen bonding

1.Intermolecular Hydrogen Bonding

2.Intramolecular Hydrogen Bonding

Intermolecular Hydrogen bond formed between two molecules.

Intramolecular Hydrogen bond formed between two  different atoms in a  same molecule.

Is the Hydrogen bonding between water molecules intermolecular or intramolecular:

Examples of Intermolecular H-bonds:

1.Hydrogen bonds between HF molecules.

2.Hydrogen bonds between NH3 molecules.

3.Hydrogen bonds between H2O molecules.

Examples of Intramolecular H-bonds:

Hydrogen bonding in o-nitro phenol.
