What factors affect hydrogen bonding?

In determining the 3D structures and properties acquired by synthetic and natural proteins, hydrogen bonding is an important factor. Hydrogen bonding greatly influences the ice’s crystal structure, creating an open hexagonal lattice.

  • Extensiveness – More hydrogen bonds will have a molecule that can form more hydrogen bonds with neighboring molecules, thus taking more energy to sever more hydrogen bonds per molecule, and the melting/boiling point will be lower.
  • Polarity – If the extension is the same, then we can compare H-F, H-O, and H-N bond polarity to deduce hydrogen bond strength.
