# What does chemical bonding look like at the quantum level?

How does chemical bonding look like on the quantum scale per se since the electron is a wave, and a particle?

• It's "per se", and you can't see it. Feb 26 '16 at 0:24
• Electron is neither a wave nor a particle; so you are really mistaking by saying electron is a wave. Wave is probability distribution function which assigns probability to place for finding the electron.

• I believe this question is way to broad. Theoretical and computational chemistry are the two major branches that look into these interactions. Chemical bonding is nothing you can cover in a few words, I am not even sure if it can be understood, I am almost certain there is no way to picture it or make an image that you can see (just as orthocresol already mentioned).
