What is the origin of #"hydrogen-bonding"#?
Hydrogen bonding is not due to
Hydrogen bonding is an intermolecular interaction observed when hydrogen is bound to a strongly electronegative atom such as fluorine, or oxygen, or nitrogen. It is largely responsible for the absurdly high normal boiling points of water, and hydrogen fluoride,
Because of the electronegativity of the heteroatom charge separation occurs to give
