Intermolecular Bonds

Intermolecular Bonds

Chemists from RUDN University recently initiated an in-depth analysis on nature of chlorine and nitrogen intermolecular bonds in molecules of azo dyes in a bid to define photochromic properties of azo molecules. The results and analysis is published in the Dyes and Pigments Journal, which reveal significance of halogen and hydrogen intermolecular bonds in stabilizing structure of dyes. The insights and conclusions provided in the research can be used for
