A work in collaboration with the Pate group in Virginia examined the weakly-bound cluster of sevoflurane路路路benzene ans was published in Angewandte Chemie. The primary interaction is a relatively strong C-H路路路pi hydrogen bond. The presence of additional C-H路路路F weak interactions hinders the six-fold symmetric internal rotation of benzene around sevoflurane. This is probably the first time that such a V6 barrier has been determined in a intermolecular complex.
