An effective Hamiltonian is considered for hydrogen bonding between two molecules due to the quantum mechanical interaction between the orbitals of the H-atom and the donor and acceptor atoms in the molecules. The Hamiltonian acts on two diabatic states and has a simple chemically motivated form for its matrix elements. The model gives insight into the -H-bond puzzle-, describes different classes of bonds, and empirical correlations between the donor-acceptor distance R and binding energies, bond lengths, and the softening of vibrational frequencies. A key prediction is the UV photo-dissociation of H-bonded complexes via an excited electronic state with an exalted vibrational frequency.
