– New non-covalent interactions arising when B and P is replaced by Al and/or Ga in amineboranes and phosphineboranes. – The so- called “beryllium bonds” whose existence was proposed recently by our two teams and which exhibit several common features with the conventional hydrogen bonds. – Very strong non-covalent interactions leading to the formation of metallocycles and which can be somehow related with metal-organic-frameworks (MOFs) used in gas-storage. – Non-covalent interactions involved in the building up of metal-organic-frameworks (MOF) or covalent organic frameworks (COFs) systems with gas-storage (Hydrogen, CO2,…) capacity. – Non-covalent interactions associated with ditopic systems as possible building blocks of new materials.- Frustrated Lewis pairs, some of which may exhibit also gas-storage capacity.
