Problem: Formation of hydrogen bonds requires hydrogen atoms and what else?A.     waterB.     oxygenC.     ionic bondsD.     polar covalent bonds

FREE Expert Solution

Hydrogen bonding is a special type of dipole-dipole attraction between molecules, not a covalent bond to a hydrogen atom. It results from the attractive force between a hydrogen atom covalently bonded to a very electronegative atom such as a N, O, or F atom and another very electronegative atom.
