Molecular balances based on the dibenzobicyclo[3.2.2]nonane template enable probing of the competition between halogen-πand CH-πinteractions. Structural, NMR spectroscopic, and computational analyses revealed that the πsystem can favorably interact both with C-X or C-H functionalities, depending on the size of the functional group.
