Do you know any Chemistry? This is really more of a Chemistry question than a Biology one. If it was asked in a Biology class, they are probably looking for 'the gist of it' instead of a deep explanation in which case look up:

-Dipole Moments
-Hydrogen bonds
-Peroxides

That should give you plenty to work with. If you need to get a deeper understanding you're better off taking a Chemistry class.
