This article is a personal, chronological account of experimental work carried out on the hydrogen bond, the halogen bond and other non-covalent interactions by my research group using (mainly) rotational spectroscopy since 1974. It is not intended to be comprehensive, and therefore does not include contributions made by many groups in the last 40 years or so.
