The geometries and energetics of noncovalent interactions in chemistry and biology involving aromatic rings—such as π–π stacking and edge-to-face contacts, cation–π, arene–perfluoroarene, and sulfur–arene interactions, as well as H bonding to π surfaces—are analyzed taking into account the results from molecular recognition studies with artificial receptors, biostructural work, crystallographic database mining, gas-phase studies, and theoretical calculations. Shown here is a portion of the structure of the chalcone O-methyltransferase with sulfur–adenosine interactions.
