Dipolar Bond

         A dipolar bond is covalent bond between the two atoms where one of the atom provides both electrons that form the bond. A dipolar bond also known as dative covalent bond or coordinate bond is a kind of 2c - 2e bond.
        When Lewis base donates a pairs of electrons to a Lewis acid that time dipolar bonds are formed. This description of bonding is a characteristic of valence bond theory.It has no place in molecular orbital theory or ligand field theory.
