We have begun to explore the electronic nature of halogen bonding, a type of intermolecular interaction that has been termed a halogen version of a hydrogen bond. In collaboration with Paul Beer (Oxford), we are probing the details of this type of bonding in well-defined systems synthesized at Oxford.
