  Covalent bond - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Covalently bonded hydrogen and carbon in a molecule of methane.
Covalent bonding is a form of chemical bonding characterized by the sharing of one or more pairs of electrons between two elements, producing a mutual attraction that holds the resultant molecule together.
However, covalent bonding in metals and, particularly between metals and organic compounds is particularly important, especially in industrial catalysis and process chemistry, where many indispensible reactions depend on covalent bonding with metals.

Covalent bonding is a form of chemical bonding characterized by the sharing of one or more pairs of electrons between atoms, in order to produce a mutual attraction, which holds the resultant molecule together.
Covalent bonding most frequently occurs between atoms with similar (high) electronegativities, where to completely remove an electron from one atom requires too much energy.
Covalent bonds are more common between non-metals, whereas ionic bonding is more common between a metal atom and a non-metal atom.

 Encyclopedia: Covalent bond
Electronegativity is the measure of the ability of an atom or molecule to attract electrons in the context of a chemical bond.
In chemistry, a three-center bond is a type of covalent bond, in which one pair of electrons joins three atoms rather than the usual two.
A coordinate covalent bond (also known as dative covalent bond) is a special type of covalent bond in which the shared electrons come from one of the atoms only.

 The Covalent Bond
A single covalent bond is a bond in which two atoms are held together by sharing two electrons.
Covalent bonds form between atoms when ionic or metallic bonding is unlikely because the gain or loss of electrons requires large amounts of energy.
A covalent bond in which electrons are shared unequally is called a polar covalent bond; one atom acquires a partial negative charge (d -) and the other acquires a partial positive charge (d +).

 Covalent Radius
Across a period, covalent radius decreases because effective nuclear charge increases (due to an increase in no. of protons and little increase in shielding) therefore shells are pulled closer towards the nucleus.
Covalent radius increases down a group due to the constant effective nuclear charge and increase in no. of shells at increasing distances from the nucleus.
Covalent radius is constant across the first row of transition metals because despite an increase in no. of protons across the period, electrons enter the inner 3D subshell, therefore the increase in nuclear charge is shielded so all the transition metals feel the same effective nuclear charge.

 Chemical Bonds
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.
Covalent bonds in which the sharing of the electron pair is unequal, with the electrons spending more time around the more nonmetallic atom, are called polar covalent bonds.
When hydrogen atoms are joined in a polar covalent bondwith a small atom of high electronegativity such as O, F or N, the partial positive charge on the hydrogen is highly concentrated because of its small size.

 JCE 1997 (74) 1494 [Dec] The Mechanism of Covalent Bonding
Covalent bonding is the natural consequence of the electron delocalization that occurs when two or more atoms form a stable molecule by the process of electron sharing.
In an effort to present an easily accessible physical picture, covalent bonding is often described in terms of simple (but incorrect) electrostatic models that effectively ignore the quantum mechanical nature of electrons and the importance of delocalization.
In this paper we reexamine the mechanism of covalent bonding, specifically with a view to its teaching, that starts with quantum theory and the interpretation of its predictions, such as electronic delocalization and the concomitant lowering of the electronic energy as bonding occurs.

 Bond Lengths and Energies
For example, the covalent radii of H and C are 37 and 77 pm respectively.
For covalent bonds, bond energies and bondlengths depend on many factors: electron afinities, sizes of atoms involved in the bond, differences in their electronegativity, and the overall structure of the molecule.
Covalent bonds such as H-Cl, H-I etc are polar, because the bonding electrons are attracted to the more electronegative atoms, Cl and I in these cases.

 Covalent bonding   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
This current occurs when a covalent bond is broken and a vacancy is left in the atom by the missing valence electron.
This vacancy is commonly referred to as a "hole." The hole is considered to have a positive charge because its atom is deficient by one electron, which causes the protons to outnumber the electrons.
Since hole flow results from the breaking of covalent bonds, which are at the valence band level, the electrons associated with this type of conduction contain only valence band energy and must remain in the valence band.
