Steve Scheiner Detailed comparison of the pnicogen bond with chalcogen, halogen, and hydrogen bonds International Journal of Quantum Chemistry 113
Pnicogen bonds represent a very real type of noncovalent interaction, with parallels to chalcogen, halogen bonds, and H-bonds. All these noncovalent bonds are quite similar in strength and nature and owe their stability to a mixture in nearly equal parts of electrostatic attraction and charge transfer, along with a smaller dispersion component. Pnicogen bonds can be tuned, in the same way that hydrogen and halogen bonds are, for the rational design of large molecular systems.
