The use of the pion capture method in structural chemistry is demonstrated by experiments performed in Dubna on various hydrogen-bonded chemical systems: pure water and ammonia in solid, liquid, and gaseous phases; aquacompiexes; and solutions of acids and salts. The experimental information, the capture probability of stoppedπ mesons by protons, is related to the electron density near the proton in the molecule.
