What are Hydrogen Bonds?
The force of attraction in which hydrogen atom is covalently bonded to a highly electronegative atom in a molecule is attracted by the unshared electron pair of another electronegative atom in a nearby molecule is called hydrogen bonding.
EXAMPLES OF HYDROGEN BONDING FROM DAILY LIFE
4. Soap and detergents
Types of Hydrogen Bonds:
There are two types of Hydrogen bonds.
1.Intermolecular Hydrogen Bonds
2. Intramolecular Hydrogen Bonds
Intermolecular Hydrogen Bonding Definition:
Intermolecular Hydrogen bonds are formed between two molecules.
Intermolecular Hydrogen Bonding Examples:
Hydrogen Bonding between water(H2O) molecules, ammonia (NH3)molecules, and Hydrogen Fluoride(HF) molecules.
Intramolecular Hydrogen Bonding Definition:
Hydrogen bonds are formed between two different atoms in the same molecule.
Example of Intramolecular Hydrogen Bonding:
