Ever since its discovery [1] almost a century ago, the hydrogen bond, its character, and effect on molecular structure and properties have been the topic of numerous studies [2,3]. The hydrogen bond is unquestionably an essential idea in explaining the structure of natural proteins and synthetic polyamides as well as small molecule association phenomena, intramolecular ring closure, and catalysis.
