What are HHB files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a HHB file or are you simply curious about its contents? We're here to explain the properties of these files and provide you with software that can open or handle your HHB files.

What is a HHB file?

A .HHB file is a LigPlot Hydrogen-Bonds Data file.

These files include data on hydrogen bonding inside a molecule or chemical complex. LigPlot is a software application developed by the University of Cambridge's Molecular Graphics Laboratory for displaying and studying the 3D structure of molecules.

Hydrogen bonds are chemical bonds formed by two atoms, usually a hydrogen atom and an atom of a strongly electronegative element like nitrogen, oxygen, or fluorine. These bonds are weaker than covalent bonds, yet they are critical in determining the three-dimensional structure and characteristics of molecules.

The .hhb file format is used to hold the data created by LigPlot, which is used to view and study hydrogen bonds in a molecule. This information comprises the atoms involved in the hydrogen bonds, as well as the bond lengths and angles.
