A Molecular Electrostatic Potential (MESP) Analysis of Hydrogen, Halogen, and Dihydrogen Bonds : These bonds in weak, medium and strong regimes (<1 to 60 kcal/mol) have been investigated for several intermolecular donoracceptor (D-A) complexes. The MESP features provided a clear evidence for the formation of these bonds and defined them as electron donor-acceptor interactions.

Cooperativity and Cluster Growth Patterns in Acetonitrile: A DFT Study:This study using M06L method investigated cyclic, ladder-type, stacked, cross-stacked, and mixed cluster patterns. Total interaction energy (Eint ) and interaction energy per monomer (Em ) showed maximum stability and cooperativity in stacked clusters followed by cross- stacked ones. The existence of a third crystal pattern for acetonitrile is predicted.
