Solve a Chemistry Trivia argument
« on: November 09, 2010, 04:50:04 PM »
Can anyone name me a Hydrogen Donor that cannot form hydrogen bonds or a hydrogen acceptor that accepts Hydrogen using a free pair of electrons that cannot hydrogen bond.

Edit: tbutyl lithium works but the first one is throwing me for a loop
I've never seen a mole in a bag of animal crackers , but I've heard they're tasty. Can I have one please :)

Would sodium hydride count as a hydrogen donor?

Well, if you are looking for a proton donor that doesn't form H-bonds, HCl, HI, HBr could be some of the examples. But if its just Hydrogen ion (anion or cation not being the issue), then back to macman104.
