Noncovalent interactions are ubiquitous in chemistry, playing a role in chemical reactions, ion solvation, and protein binding. Halide – molecule van der Waals complexes represent ideal candidates in the study of noncovalent interactions isolated in the gas phase. The core theme of this thesis lies in the application of anion photoelectron spectroscopy and ab initio calculations in order to study these halide – molecule complexes and the underlying noncovalent interactions. Complexes involving halide anions with formic acid, carbon disulfide, and carbonyl sulfide represent the focus of this thesis.
