    What is the hydrogen bond?

    Elangannan Arunan

      I inititated an international effort through IUPAC to come-up with a modern

      definition of the hydrogen bond. The task group formed by IUPAC has

      recently submitted a recommendation for the definition of hydrogen bond

      and a technical report that provides the rationale for the proposed definition

      and also a summary of hydrogen bond reasearch over the past century.

      Link to IUPAC website with the recommendation:
