    Are you asking about a chemical reaction between aldehydes/ketones and alcohols? If so, they do react to form (hemi)acetals) and (hemi)ketals.
    Are you asking about hydrogen bonding? That involves the attraction between a hydrogen in a H-O- group and an O in a different H-O- group. You are more likely to get an answer if you give us some context for your question.
