Intramolecular bonding

There are several types of bonding inside molecules (intramolecular bonds) and between molecules (intermolecular bonds).

The intramolecular bonding types have different properties, but all can be arranged into a bonding continuum, where the bonding present inside molecules has varying degrees of ionic character.

The types of bonding are:

  • pure covalent bonds
  • polar covalent bonds
  • ionic bonds
