    Dative covalent bonding is when one atom in a compound provides all of the electrons required for the covalent bond between two atoms. This can occur in any covalently bonded compound, not just one containing hydrogen.

    This differs from covalent bonding when each atom provides half of the required electrons for the bond.
    Ok thank you so much!!
