Caption: Bond formation in oxygen molecule. Animation of the sharing of electrons (dots and crosses) between two oxygen atoms (O) to form a molecule of oxygen (O2). This is an example of covalent bonding, with the double bond shown here formed by two shared electron pairs, each pair consisting of an electron from each atom. The outer electron shell of each atom is shown as a blue ring. Oxygen is a gas at room temperature and pressure.
