Complementary halogen and hydrogen bonding: sulfur- iodine interactions and thioamide ribbons.
Arman, H. D.; Gieseking, R. L.; Hanks, T. W.; Pennington, W. T. Complementary halogen and hydrogen bonding: sulfur- iodine interactions and thioamide ribbons. Chem. Commun. (Cambridge, U. K.) 2010, 46, 1854-6.
Complementary halogen bonding and hydrogen bonding coexist in co-crystals of organoiodines with molecules containing the thioamide functionality. Thiourea.organoiodine co-crystals are shown to exhibit a remarkably reliable synthon with complementary N-H...S ribbons and S...I interactions.
