so I had a question regarding WHY halogenoalkanes don't dissolve in water....
Ok, so I know hydrogen bonding is an intermolecular force and for hydrogen bonding to happen it needs to be bonded to either nitrogen, fluorine, or oxygen in order to bond to ANOTHER atom (does this OTHER atom belonging to another molecule have to be nitrogen, fluorine or oxygen as well). Because, if this is the case, how does water dissolve salt or other substances if they don't have either nitrogen, fluorine or oxygen if it can't hydrogen bond with anything except these three electronegative elements??

A hydrogen bond is formed between the hydrogen on one molecule and a lone pair on the other molecule (O, N, F).
