Abstract:\begin{wrapfigure}{|}{0pt} \includegraphics[scale=0.3]{Fig.eps} \end{wrapfigure} Pnicogen bonding emerged as an important interaction as ubiquitous hydrogen bonding, the study of interactions of simple molecular model systems involving pnicogen bonding can be a platform to understand the complex mechanisms controlled by these non-covalent interactions. In the present work matrix isolation spectroscopy in combination with quantum chemical computations were used to elucidate the structures of P...N pnicogen bonded dimers of phosphoryl chloride(\chem{POCl_3}) prototype with nitrogen-bases such as ammonia (\chem{NH_3}), aniline (\chem{C_6H_7N}), and pyridine (\chem{C_5H_5N}), where phosphorus is predominantly present in pentavalent state. The basicities of the interacting partner (\chem{NH_3},\chem{C_6H_7N},\chem{C_5H_5N}) completely influences the geometrical preference of all these dimers. The \chem{POCl_3}-\chem{NH_3} dimer is anticipated to have a hydrogen bonded geometry, however with hydrogen bonding, a P...N pnicogen bonding plays a definite and a non-trivial role in their overall stabilization. An interesting paradigm transformation was noticed in \chem{POCl_3}-\chem{C_6H_7N} and \chem{POCl_3}-\chem{C_5H_5N} heterodimers, where P...N pnicogen bonding was observed to completely dominate the hydrogen bonding. Furthermore, the characteristic interactions were investigated through electrostatic potential mapping, energy decomposition and non covalent interaction analyses.
