Bond Making and Bond Breaking Processes: Heterolysis and Homolysis A covalent bond may break by either of two different processes: heterolysis or homolysis. Heterolysis ( Gr: hetero- "different" + lysis-"cleavage") A : B A + B: ions + - Double-barbed arrow is used to show movement of an electron pair. Homolysis ( Gr : homo-"the same" + lysis) A : B A . + B . radicals Single-barbed arrow is used to show movement of a single electron.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
