Which elements can take part in hydrogen bonding? (O, N, and F) WHY IS HYDROGEN UNIQUE IN THIS KIND OF INTERACTION?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Hydrogen bond arises due to induced dipole moment in a molecule, which occur under the presence of electronegative atoms like F,O, or N etc. In such compounds a partial positive charge is present over hydrogen atom and a partial negative charge ...
