When the hydrogen bond is present between two atoms of two different molecules, then it is known intermolecular hydrogen bond. When the hydrogen bond is present between two atoms of the same molecule, then it is known as intramolecular hydrogen bond. For example, intramolecular hydrogen bonding occurs in ethylene glycol (C2H4(OH)2) between its two hydroxyl groups due to the molecular geometry and intermolecular hydrogen bonds can occur between NH3 molecules alone, between H2O molecules alone, or between NH3 and H2O molecules.
