102.Secondary bonding(6)- Protein folding
We continue to study the physical manifestations of H- bonds and their importance. Protein folding Hydrogen bonds are an integral part of the protein structure.
101. Secondary bonding(5)- Hydrogen Bonding (3)
We studied hydrogen bonding in the last two posts. In this post, we will study the types of these bonds and their implications. The H-bond,
100. Secondary bonding(4)- Hydrogen Bonding (2)
I take immense pride in writing the 100th post on this blog. I am glad that I could continue writing throughout my pregnancy after my daughter was
99. Secondary bonding(3)- Hydrogen Bonding (1)
In this post, we start discussing a type of secondary bonding, without which life would not be possible !! How is hydrogen bonding and life
98. Secondary bonding(2)- Induced dipole- Induced dipole interactions.
S2.Induced dipole– Induced dipole interactions. Vander Waals bond, London dispersion force and induced dipole-induced dipole interactions all mean the same. This type of interaction is operative
97. Secondary bonding(1)- Dipole-dipole interactions.
We have already seen in post # 54, that the main difference between primary and secondary bonding is that in secondary bonding, there is NO
96. Metallic bonding(2).
As we discussed in the last post, the free electron gas model is not infallible. Almost 30 years after the electron gas model was proposed,
95. Metallic bonding(1).
P3.THE METALLIC BOND. In this post, we shall discuss the last kind of primary bond – The metallic bond. We see many objects in our everyday
94.Co-ordinate Covalent Bond.
This post is dedicated to studying the co-ordinate covalent. This is a bond formed between an electron-rich and an electron-poor species. Electron rich species →
93.Covalent Bonding(39) – MOT(12)- Heteronuclear diatomic molecules(3).
CO in high concentration is fatal in less than 5 mins !! The worst part is that this is an odorless and colorless gas and
92. Covalent Bonding(38) – MOT(13)- Heteronuclear diatomic molecules(2)- HF.
From this post onwards, we shall study some examples and learn how bonds are formed between two different atoms. Hydrogen fluoride (HF) – We begin
