Polar Covalent Bond

Science / Biology / Polar Covalent Bond: A covalent bond in which atoms share electrons in an unequal fashion. The resulting molecule has regions with positive and negative charges. The presence of polar covalent bonds allows other polar molecules to surround molecule: example: glucose sugar in water.
