Chemistry Concepts - 10 These slightly charged polar covalent molecules are attracted to other polar molecules (+ attracts -) and form very weak polar bonds. These bonds are weak because the charges are weak and because the electrons are always in motion. (Some of the time anyway, the end which is primarily positive will have the electrons spinning there and lose its polarity for that instant.)

Unformatted text preview: The bond that forms between adjacent polar covalent molecules is called a Hydrogen bond. Hydrogen Bonding Attraction between adjacent polar molecules Common with the element hydrogen (which has a very low negativity) and high electronegativity atoms. e.g. .: H-N H-O Hydrogen bonding is very important in the structure of: Water Proteins Nucleic acids...
