A new tool for molecular architects

Thanks to a research led by a team from the University of Geneva and NCCR Chemical Biology, one must now add the exotic halogen bond to the list of its better known kin such as the covalent bond, the hydrogen bond and the ionic bond. This discovery is excellent news for all those who practice supramolecular architecture and is the subject of a publication in Nature Communications.
