The hydrogen atoms attracted to nonbonding electron pairs on the oxygen atoms of other water molecules form hydrogen bonds [1-3],
This is because, the quaternization involves the nonbonding electron in the bonding, thereby lowers the energy.

The increase in inhibition efficiency with concentration may be due to the adsorption of caffeine onto the aluminium surface through nonbonding electron pairs of nitrogen and oxygen atoms as well as the [pi]-electrons of the aromatic rings.
The band around 322 nm is due to naI* transition of the nonbonding electrons present on the nitrogen of the -C=N in the free ligand.

Absorption at 290 nm was assigned to charge transfer from the nonbonding orbital of chloride ions to half-filled d-orbitals of cobalt (II) [38].
More specifically, molecules containing [pi]-electrons or nonbonding electrons (n-electrons) can absorb the energy in the form of ultraviolent or visible light to excite these electrons to higher antibonding molecular orbitals.
Similarly, the nonbonding electrons on the methoxido oxygen were delocalized into Rydberg orbitals of the vanadium ion with the following interaction energies: 7.46 and 1.09kcal/mol for LP(1)O6 [right arrow] [RY.sup.*](2)V and LP(1)O6 [right arrow] [RY.sup.*](5)V, respectively.
Even more remarkable is the ability to look inside the part wall to see voids in gas-assist parts, weld lines, glass distribution and orientation, integrity of barrier layers, and bonding or nonbonding of different materials in coinjected or overmolded parts.
