Covalent Bonds

covalent

Since the atoms of most elements do not have full outer electron shells, they tend to react with one another to form compounds with a more noble gas like electron configuration. The covalent bond is the most commonly occurring type of chemical bond in organic molecules. In this bond type, a pair of electrons is shared between two atoms, resulting in a new electron orbit that extends around the nuclei of both atoms.
