Halogen bonding: a powerful tool for constructing supramolecular co-crystalline materials

Halogen bonding is emerging as an important driving force for supramolecular self-assembly, and shows great potential in the design and synthesis of new multicomponent supramolecular co-crystalline materials. Co-crystals can retain the inherent property of every component, and exhibit more novel physicochemical properties through synergistic effects between different components, which is helpful to realize the multifunction of materials. Huang’s group form Nanjing Tech University summarize the latest advances in halogen-bonding co-crystals, and outline future development directions.
