Arunan, E (1999) Hydrogen bond: A fascination forever! In: Current Science, 77 (10). pp. 1233-1235.
In 1920, Latimer and Rodebush conceptualized the hydrogen bond (H bond)1. Almost eight decades have passed and the H bond is continuing to fascinate researchers in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology and materials sciences. Literally, thousands of papers are published every year on H bonds (A Chemical Abstract search for the year 1998 with ‘hydrogen bond’ as the key word resulted in 3707 documents and 13436 occurrences!). Some of the recent publications deserve a closer look as they address some fundamental issues on H bonds.
