Halogen bonding and other σ-hole interactions

Peter Politzer, Jane Murray and Timothy Clark review sigma-hole bonding in their recent PCCP Perspective and its contribution to the understanding of the halogen bond and other non-covalent interactions. They detail the historic background of the concept of sigma-hole bonding from both experimental and theoretical perspectives, and present the most recent theoretical findings on the fascinating  character of this class of molecular interactions.

    Has anyone looked at titanium oxide σ holes as a catalyst for disassociating water? It will still need UV light!
