Short, bent, strongly hydrogen-bonded chains, with strong interchain interactions and very little branching are the basis of the structure of liquid hydrogen fluoride (see picture), as determined at the partial radial distribution function level.

Item Type: Article
Additional Information: First determination of the structure of hydrogen fluoride at the atomic pair level, using neutron and high energy X-ray diffraction which showed that, contrary to calculations the structure is composed of finite chains, with an exceptionally short bent intermolecular hydrogen bond. JFCT directed the work and is corresponding author.
