The project utilises halogen bonding in the construction of nano-sized molecular capsules. The structures of these capsules will be studied in detail in solid state and in gas phase. Due to the nature of the halogen bond used in the capsule formation, the capsules might act as nano reactors for some organic reactions and this property will be studied within the project. The project combined the complementary expertise of the Finnish and German groups on an extremely topical research area, viz. halogen bonding.
