Summary of "QTAIM Characteristics of Halogen Bond and Related Interactions."

Different types of noncovalent interactions such as, for example, halogen bond, hydrogen bond, and dihalogen bond are analyzed. The analysis is based on ab initio calculations which were performed on complexes of the F(3)CCl molecule. This choice is connected with the features of the Cl atom which may act as the Lewis acid and also as the Lewis base center. Such a dual role is a consequence of the existence of negative and positive regions of the electrostatic potential of the Cl center. Hence, the F(3)CCl molecule forms complexes linked by various interactions. The formation of the complexes leads to the electron charge redistribution which is reflected in the quantum theory of atoms in molecules (QTAIM) characteristics. Numerous correlations and tendencies were found here between QTAIM, geometrical and energetic parameters. It was found that the mechanism of the formation of complexes linked through various interactions is generally the same as that known for the hydrogen bond formation. The dependencies and QTAIM characteristics considered here are in agreement with Bent's rule.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Those characteristics that distinguish one SEX from the other. The primary sex characteristics are the OVARIES and TESTES and their related hormones. Secondary sex characteristics are those which are masculine or feminine but not directly related to reproduction.

The interactions between individuals of different generations. These interactions include communication, caring, accountability, loyalty, and even conflict between related or non-related individuals.

The study of the characteristics, behavior, and internal structures of the atomic nucleus and its interactions with other nuclei. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)

Screening techniques first developed in yeast to identify genes encoding interacting proteins. Variations are used to evaluate interplay between proteins and other molecules. Two-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for protein-protein interactions, one-hybrid for DNA-protein interactions, three-hybrid interactions for RNA-protein interactions or ligand-based interactions. Reverse n-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for mutations or other small molecules that dissociate known interactions.

The interactions of particles responsible for their scattering and transformations (decays and reactions). Because of interactions, an isolated particle may decay into other particles. Two particles passing near each other may transform, perhaps into the same particles but with changed momenta (elastic scattering) or into other particles (inelastic scattering). Interactions fall into three groups: strong, electromagnetic, and weak. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, 7th ed)
