Metrical Aspects of Two-Center Hydrogen Bonds
The donor and acceptor groups found in biological structures which form O — H ··· O bonds are given in Box 6.1. The C — OH ⋯ O hydrogen bonds are the primary intermolecular cohesive force between the carbohydrate molecules, water, and carboxylic acids. They occur extensively in the structures of cyclodextrins, polysaccharides, glycolipids, and glycoproteins. The OWH ··· O bonds are important in the ices, in hydrated crystal structures, and in the hydration shell of all biological molecules.
