The interactions of halogen atoms with aromatic π-systems can be crucial for structural stability and ligand binding. However, many aspects of the nature and energetics of these interactions remain elusive. Therefore, we designed model systems mimicking the T-shaped complex of chloro- and bromobenzene with tyrosine as found, e.g., in serine protease-inhibitor complexes. Three dimensional potential energy surfaces (3D-PES) were calculated at a high level of theory, up to CCSD(T). On these 3D-PES… CONTINUE READING
