Halogen bonding is the attractive, non-covalent interaction that can form between an electrophilic region of a halogen atom in a molecule and a nucleophilic region of a molecule. The bonding can be exploited in areas such as supramolecular chemistry, crystal engineering and the fabrication of liquid crystals.
