Coordinate Covalent Bond

In coordinate covalent bonds, the same aspect of the sharing of electrons exists, just as in simple covalent bonds, but the difference is that both shared electrons are supplied by the same atom.



Coordinate covalent bond is formed when the two electrons that are shared in the formation of the bond are donated by one group or atom involved in the bond.


An example of coordinate covalent bond is seen in the formation of ammonium ion (NH4+).
