The largest single use of dihydrogen is in the manufacture of ammonia.
- Dihydrogen is a diatomic molecule made up of two hydrogen atoms that is homonuclear.
- This molecule has a covalent bond between two hydrogen atoms that fulfils each of their duet configuration requirements.
- This molecule has a linear shape and is nonpolar in nature.
- Each hydrogen atom contributes one electron towards the covalent bond.
- Therefore, the duet configuration requirements of both the hydrogen atoms that constitute the dihydrogen molecule are satisfied.
