FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to draw 4 water molecules hydrogen bonding to 4 atoms in Celexa.


Hydrogen Bond is the force that exists when H is directly connected to F, O, or N. An electronegative atom such as fluorine, oxygen, or nitrogen can also participate in hydrogen bonding, regardless of whether it is bonded to a hydrogen atom or not.


Let’s identify which parts of water and Celexa can participate in hydrogen bonding. 

Water, H2O
