The task group recommends the definition given here for the halogen bond. The short definition is followed by a not exhaustive list of experimental and/or theoretical features, which can be used as evidence for the presence of a halogen bond. A comprehensive technical report is being prepared by the task group in order to relate the proposed definition with the past work on halogen bond and provide the rationale for the proposed definition.
