Halogen Bonding

What is it about?

How halogen bonding can be used to come up with new base pairs...

Why is it important?

First time in literature, we portray how halogen bonds can alter the occurrence of the base pairs at wobble junction. The results reveal that it is possible to change the way in which the base pairs are behaving at wobble junction with halogen and hydrogen bonds. This is a revolutionary work in the field of base pairs.
