The weak or non-conventional hydrogen bond has been the subject of intense scrutiny over recent years. Although the existence of this type of hydrogen bond was suggested many years ago, research has traditionally focused on the stronger and more well-known forms of hydrogen bonds. However, a growing body of experimental and theoretical evidence now confirms that hydrogen bonds like C-H...O, O-H..., C-H... and even bonds such as O-H...metal play distinctive roles in structural chemistry and biology. This book provides a critical assessment of this interesting and occasionally controversial interaction type. It will be a useful resource for a wide range of researchers in structural and supramolecular science.

Gautam Desiraju is at School of Chemistry, University of Hyderabad, India. Thomas Steiner is at Institut fuer Kristallographie, Freie Universitat Berlin, Germany.Review:
"Desiraju (chemistry, U. of Hyderabad, India) and Steiner (crystallography, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany) survey what is known about ... the interactions of weak and non-conventional hydrogen bonding. After an introductory discussion of the weak hydrogen bond in relation to hydrogen bonds in general, the discussion includes an analysis of a particular carbon-hydrogen-oxygen bond as the prototype of the entire interaction type, the extension of the analysis to a range of hydrogen bond donors and acceptors, the ways in which weak hydrogen bonds may be employed in supramolecular chemistry and crystal engineering, and how they influence biological structure and function."--SciTech Book News
