A nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) study of the electronic structure of bridging halogen atoms in dimers of transition and non-transition metal halides has been performed. An explanation of the differences in the NQR frequencies for transition and non-transition metal halides is proposed. The population of the bridging halogen atom orbitals and the metal-halogen bond lengths have been estimated by the AMI method. The aim of this paper was to obtain a relationship describing the lengths of the metal-halogen bonds.
