Hydrogen bonding can occur in between some molecules that contain hydrogen. If a hydrogen is bonded to an oxygen, nitrogen or fl uorine atom in one molecule, it can hydrogen bond to an oxygen, nitrogen or fl uorine atom in another molecule. A hydrogen bond can be thought of as either an exceptionally
