Structural Chemistry, the journal, the discipline, bridge building, and our personal and professional practice

This paper was written on the occasion of the 30th special Jubilee volume of Structural Chemistry journal in 2019. It offered us a unique opportunity to look at our common papers and achievements in the fields of thermochemistry and analytical chemistry with a special emphasis on fluorine-containing species. We have managed to build some new bridges between theory and experiment, and we look forward to building many more.
