How to determine whether intramolecular H...H interactions can be classified as dihydrogen bonds.

Different types of intramolecular H...H interactions have been analyzed using the MP2/6-311++G(d,p) level of approximation. These are C-H...H-B, C-H...H-Al, C-H...H-C, C-H...H-O, O-H...H-Al and O-H...H-B contacts. Quantum theory of atoms in molecules and natural bond orbitals methods were applied to better understand the nature of these interactions. It was… (More)
