Covalent bonding is often [[Delocalized electron|delocalized]]. Covalent bonding is a broad concept and includes many kinds of interactions, including σ-bonding, π-bonding, metal-metal bonding, [[agostic complex|agostic interaction]]s, and [[three-center two-electron bond]]s.<ref>March, J. “Advanced Organic Chemistry” $th Ed.

== History ==
[[Image:covalent.svg|right|thumb|160px|Early concepts in covalent bonding arose from this kind of image of the molecule of [[methane]]. Covalent bonding is implied in the [[dot and cross diagram]] that indicates sharing of electrons between atoms.]]
== Bond polarity ==
There are two types of covalent bonds: [[Polar molecule|Polar]] covalent bonds, and non-polar (or pure) covalent bonds. The most widely-accepted definition of polar covalence is the occurrence of the atoms involved of an [[electronegativity]] difference less than or equal to 2.1 but
== Bond order ==
# [[Quadruple bond]]s are found in the transition metals. [[Molybdenum]] and [[rhenium]] are the elements most commonly observed with this bonding configuration. An example of a quadruple bond is also found in [[Di-tungsten tetra(hpp)]].
# [[Quintuple bond]]s have been found to exist in certain di[[chromium]] compounds.
# Sextuple bonds, of order 6, have also been observed in [[transition metal]]s in the
Most bonding of course, is not localized, so the following classification, while powerful and pervasive, is of limited validity. [[Three center bond]] do not conform
== Coordinate covalent bonds ==
== Resonance ==
Many bonding situations can be described with more than one valid Lewis Dot Structure (for example, [[ozone]], O<sub>3</sub>). In an LDS diagram of O<sub>3</sub>, the center atom will have a single bond with one atom and a double bond with the other. The LDS diagram cannot tell us which atom has the double bond; the first and second adjoining atoms have equal chances of having the double bond. These two possible structures are called [[chemical resonance|resonance structures]]. In
A special resonance case is exhibited in [[aromatic]] rings of atoms (for example, [[benzene]]). Aromatic rings are composed of atoms arranged in a circle (held together by covalent bonds) that may alternate between single and double bonds according to their LDS. In actuality, the electrons tend to be disambiguously and evenly spaced within the ring. Electron sharing in aromatic structures is often represented with a ring inside the circle of atoms.
== Current theory ==
Today the valence bond model has been supplanted by the [[molecular orbital]] model. In this model, as atoms are brought together, the ''atomic'' orbitals interact to form ''molecular'' orbitals, which are
Using quantum mechanics it is possible to calculate the electronic structure, energy levels, bond angles, bond distances, dipole moments, and electromagnetic spectra of simple molecules with a high degree of accuracy. Bond distances and angles can be calculated as accurately as they can be
