Could you please remind me what denatures: -ionic bonds -hydrogen bonds -non polar groups I know that detergent, heat, and pH denatures, I just cannot remember what denatures what.

Acids/bases can break ionic bonds, heat can break hydrogen bonds, and detergents can disrupt hydrophobic interactions (i.e. interactions between nonpolar groups).
