Abstract : A collaborative theoretical and experimental investigation of the non-bonding interactions of the boron atom with the hydrogen molecule and other species has been carried out. Additionally, bimolecular collisions of electronically excited boron atoms and non-bonding interactions of other boron-containing species, namely BM and the isovalent AIR radical, were investigated. The main advances from the experimental component of this program has been in the spectroscopy of weakly bound complexes of atomic boron, while those from the concurrent theoretical work has involved the elucidation of potential energy surfaces of weakly bound complexes of open-shell species.
