  Chemical bond - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A chemical bond is the physical phenomenon of chemical substances being held together by attraction of atoms to each other through sharing, as well as exchanging, of electrons or electrostatic forces.
Weak chemical bonds are classically explained to be effects of polarity, or the lack of it, of strong bonds.
The type of strong bond depends on the difference in electronegativity and the distribution of the electron path to the atoms that are bonded.

In chemistry and allied sciences, a chemical bond is the force which holds atoms together in molecules or crystals.
In all types of bonding, the electronic configuration of the molecule or substance (in the case of extended array structures, such as found in crystals).
The types of bonding are differentiated by the extent to which electron density is localized or delocalized among the atoms of the substance.

 Chemical Bonds
Ionic bond: bond in which one or more electrons from one atom are removed and attached to another atom, resulting in positive and negative ions which attract each other.
Covalent chemical bonds involve the sharing of a pair of valence electrons by two atoms, in contrast to the transfer of electrons in ionic bonds.
Hydrogen bonding differs from other uses of the word "bond" since it is a force of attraction between a hydrogen atom in one molecule and a small atom of high electronegativity in another molecule.

 Chemical bonding: introduction
Chemical bonding connotes the existence of an aggregate (assembly) of atoms that is sufficiently stable to possess a characteristic structure and composition.
Chemical bonds, of course, cannot be observed directly; the best we can do is to carry out experiments on substances containing the appropriate pair of atoms, and then try to make inferences about the nature of the bonding force between them.
Bond lengths depend mainly on the sizes of the atoms, and secondarily on the bond strengths, the stronger bonds tending to be shorter.

Molecules are collections of atoms that are held together by chemical bonds, so the first point is: chemical involve more than one atom, sometimes of the same atomic type and in other cases atoms of different types.
The chemical bond is some sort of "sharing" of the electrons between the atoms forming the molecule.

A chemical bond forms when it is energetically favorable, i.e., when the energy of the bonded atoms is less than the energies of the separated atoms.
Electronegativity is a measure of the ability of an atom in a molecule to draw bonding electrons to itself.
An important application of electronegativity is in the prediction of the polarity of a chemical bond.

 Conformational isomerism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Conformational isomerism is a form of isomerism and describes the phenomenon of molecules with the same structural formula having different chemical conformations or conformers due to atoms rotating about a bond.
This will result in a racemic mixture of conformations that may or may not have different reactivities in situations such as enzymatic reactions in which molecular shape is usually a key factor of operation.
Conformational isomerism only occurs around single bonds as a result of the requirement of breaking one or more pi bonds to rotate substituents about a sigma bond axis in double and triple bonded atoms.

 The Chemical Bond - Molecular Geometry
The valence bond theory of the water molecule describes the two O—H bonds as resulting from the overlap of the H 1s orbitals with the two half-filled 2p orbitals of the oxygen atom.
By assuming that the most stable bond results when the two nuclei joined by the bond lie along the axis defined by the orbitals and considering the bonds to a first approximation to be independent of one another, we can predict the geometries of molecules.

 Bond Energy
For any particular chemical bond, say the covalent bond between hydrogen and oxygen, the amount of energy it takes to break that bond is exactly the same as the amount of energy released when the bond is formed.
The energies of bonds between atoms of substantially different electronegativities tend to be high, e.g., the 110 kcal of the H-O bond.
Another important example is the bonds between oxygen and carbon atoms in carbon dioxide, CO The carbon atom shares two pairs of electrons with each of the oxygen atoms, and each of these double bonds has a bond energy of 187 kcal (or about 93 kcal for each shared pair of electrons).

 ChemTeam: G.N. Lewis & The Covalent Bond
Like a double bond it may break one bond, producing two odd carbon atoms, but it may also break in a way in which the double bond cannot, to leave a single bond and two carbon atoms (bivalent), each of which has a pair of electrons which is not bound to any other atom.
Thus two carbon atoms with a single bond strive to keep their kernels as far part as possible, and this condition is met when the adjoining corners of the two tetrahedra lie in the line joining the centers of the tetrahedra.
When a single bond changes to a multiple bond and the two atomic shells have two pairs of electrons in common, the kernels are forced nearer together and the mutual repulsion of these kernels greatly weakens the constraints at the points of junction.

 Chemical Bonding
The bond lengths of the halogen molecules are used to determine an approximate radius for chemical (covalent) bonding of the halogen atoms.
Since we are treating the chemical bond as largely depending only upon the nature of the two atoms in contact through the bond, perhaps we can use this idea to determine the overall stability of a molecule by adding up its bond energies.
This assumes that all chemical bonds between the same pair of atoms of the same type are approximately equal in properties.

The chemical bond in general is an electrical attraction between two atoms.
Bonded atoms are continually in motion as they are attracted to each other only to get too close and the repulsive interactions begin to push the atoms away from each other until the attractive interactions, once again, take control, pulling the atoms back together.
Since the bond is in continual motion, the bond length that is measured represents the average bond length (distance between the nuclei of the bonded atoms)

 The Chemical Bond
Bonding with four hydrogen atoms -- each with one 1s-orbital, containing one electron -- could be viewed as an overlap of the four orbitals of the outer electronshell of Carbon with the four times one = four orbitals of the four hydrogen atoms.
Bonds consist of electrons, and because like electrical charges repel each other, these bonds try to be as far away as possible from each other.
