Crystal engineers aim to control the way molecules aggregate in thecrystalline phase and are therefore concerned with crystalstructure prediction, polymorphism, and discovering the relativeimportance of different types of intermolecular forces and theirinfluence on molecular structure. In order to design crystalstructures, knowledge of the types, strengths, and nature ofpossible intermolecular interactions is essential. Non-covalentinteractions involving p-systems is a theme that is under extensiveinvestigation as these interactions can be inductors for theassembly of a vast array of supramolecular architectures.

The Importance of Pi-Interactions in CrystalEngineeringcovers topics ranging from the identification ofinteractions involving p-systems, their impact on molecular andcrystal structure in both organic and metallorganic systems, andhow these interactions might be exploited in the design of newmaterials. Specialist reviews are written by internationallyrecognized researchers drawn from both academia and industry.

The Importance of Pi-Interactions in CrystalEngineeringprovides an essential overview of this importantaspect of crystal engineering for both entrants to the field aswell as established practitioners, and for those working incrystallography, medicinal and pharmaceutical sciences, solid-statechemistry, physical chemistry, materials and nanotechnology
