Secondary bonding as a potential design element for crystal engineering

Abstract

Crystallographic data imply that intermolecular hypervalent interactions, “secondary bonds’', involving heavy p-block elements such as Bi(III), may form robust supramolecular synthons with many features in common with organic hydrogen bonds, including the ability to form polymeric networks in the solid state.
