Definition of the Hydrogen Bond

This recommendation provides a short definition for the hydrogen bond, followed by a list of experimental and/or theoretical criteria, which can be used as evidence for the presence of the hydrogen bond. Finally, some characteristics that are typical of hydrogen bonded systems are given. A brief explanation of the terms used is provided after the definition. The task group has also produced a comprehensive technical report, which provides a summary of the past work on hydrogen bonding and also the rationale for the proposed definition.
