Halogen bonding at work: recent applications in synthetic chemistry and materials science

Author affiliations

Abstract

Halogen bonding has recently entered the arena of reliable and valuable non-covalent interactions for the construction of supramolecular complexes. A step further, this highlight provides some new insights related to the design of advanced functional materials encompassing halogen bonded mesomorphic and electronic components. Other recent applications have been extended to various aspects of solution phase recognition (catalysis, ion sensing and resolution) and macromolecular organizations (porous, polymeric and hybrid systems).
