What is it about?

We are in the year of 2022 and if the question was 'Are we there yet?' (a complete agreement between theory and experiment describing weak intermolecular interactions), the answer would be 'No.' Well, that's not because accurate measurements and computations aren't available, but it's because still there're puzzles to be solved!

Why is it important?

We've pointed out there're unexpected discrepancies between available values of the dissociation energies of some weakly-bound complexes.


I wonder if new measurements/calculations will become available.
