Abstract

Hydrogen bonds have attracted much attention because of their important roles in chemistry and biology. With progress in the study on the hydrogen bond, a number of unusual hydrogen bonds were proposed during the past few decades. This paper aims at exhibiting a kind of new ring π-H bond complex with a "wheel with a pair of pedals" shaped (1|1) structure and revealing the properties of antiaromatic ring π dihydrogen bond and two secondary interactions accompanying it, and enriching the knowledge on novel weak interactions in an exciting part of chemistry.
