Abstract

A survey of the Cambridge Structural Database reveals hundreds of C-H·N contacts which are significantly shorter ( < 2.45 Å) than the sum of the van der Waals radii (2.75 Å), effectively refuting recent claims to the contrary and supporting the description of this interaction as a hydrogen bond.
