    Hydrogen bonds


    Hydrogen bonds are bonds formed in polar molecules in which an hydrogen atom is directly joined to a highly electronegative atom such as oxygen or nitrogen or fluorine.

    A hydrogen bond is just an electrostatic attraction between a hydrogen atom of one molecule and the electronegative atom of a neighboring molecule.

    Methanol has a formula of CH₃OH and the hydrogen bond is between the H and O.
