Abstract: Given the vast range of gas-phase molecular complexes with their structures determined by rotational spectroscopy, there are surprisingly few molecular complexes formed with hydrogen studied by this technique, especially given the uptick in research on hydrogen storage materials. This article highlights our recent efforts to observe the structures of molecular hydrogen in complexes with simple aromatic rings, moving form the known small, simple complexes, to larger benzaldehyde complexes, and continuing to sub-units of covalent organic frameworks as analogs for understanding the interactions of hydrogen with storage materials.
