A Protein Data Bank (PDB) study was undertaken to investigate the role of C-X…π interactions (X=F, Cl, Br, I) in protein structures. From this analysis, it is evident that the propensity for the formation of C-X…π interactions is higher in case of fluorine than in other halogens. These results compare well with the recently reported C-X…π interactions in small molecules and depict the orientational dependence of these interactions.
