The Pnicogen Bond in Review: Structures, Binding Energies, Bonding Properties, and Spin-Spin Coupling Constants of Complexes Stabilized by Pnicogen Bonds

Extensive ab initio MP2/aug’-cc-pVTZ studies have been carried out in our laboratories to determine the structures, binding energies, bonding properties, and EOM-CCSD spin-spin coupling constants of various series of complexes stabilized by pnicogen bonds.  These systematic studies provide insight into the nature of the pnicogen bond, and how changes in this bond are reflected in the properties of these complexes.
