Distinction between the weak hydrogen bond and the van der Waals interaction

Abstract

The angular distributions of C–H···O interactions for different types of C–H groups show that the directionality decreases with decreasing C–H polarisation, but that it is still clearly recognisable for methyl groups; for C–H···H–C van der Waals contacts, in contrast, isotropic angular characteristics are observed.
