Abstract
Thumbnail image of graphical abstract The benzene dimer, an important prototype for studying noncovalent interactions, exhibits characteristic splitting patterns in its rotational spectrum, which for a long time were not understood. A new theoretical model reveals their origin: a concerted internal motion involving sixfold hindered rotation tunneling of the molecule forming the stem of the T-shaped structure and tilt tunneling of the cap.
