Unique Bonds- Diborane

  1. Aug 15, 2012 #1
    I stumbled across diborane yesterday and was quite surprised to see the "bent bond" structure it utilizes as well as the hydrogens serving as a connection between the boron atoms.

    Are there any other unique bonds like this? All I had been taught about was covalent, resonance type/aromatic and ionic.

    Diborane is an example of a three-center two-electron bond. This Wiki navigation box on chemical bonding at the bottom might be of interest, as it links to some other interesting chemical bond-related phenomenona.
