The Dual Hydrogen Bond Web Site


Lectures are perhaps the easiest and most efficient vehicle for the propagation of new ideas to a non-specialized audience, such as students, postgraduates and the large number of researchers of lateral fields whose keen interest in the subject is non adequately supported by their previous training. Their main drawback, the smaller capability of diffusion with respect to printed matter, is now widely overcome by the possibilities of the web as an easy means for broadcasting lectures worldwide.
  Accordingly, we have thought it right to insert a selection of Six Lectures on the Nature of the Hydrogen Bond derived from the contributions delivered at various meetings and schools from 2006 to 2012 to promote our ideas on the nature of the H-bond and the many practical applications that can stem from them. To notice that the lectures are conceived as independent and self-sufficient items, so that a number of topics may turn out to be treated in duplicated but slightly different forms in different places. The small differences  simply reflects the various stages of evolution of our research as well as an inevitable spreading of opinions among  different speakers.
