Several strategies towards an understanding of the crystal chemistry of organic solids have been reviewed. The crystal structures of most organic compounds are the result of optimisation of rather weak intermolecular forces and this is illustrated for some alkoxy and chloro-aromatic compounds. Co-crystallisation of different organic molecules is the logical outcome of such methods of ‘crystal engineering’. In the resulting complexes, the forces between the component molecules can vary in magnitude and directionality and three distinct situations are described. The role of packing calculations as an alternative method for the structure determination of a reactive organic solid is described. Thermal reactions are exemplified by a case of solid state co-operative tautomerism and one of a base-catalysed interlamellar dehydration in a layered structure.

Structural interest in organometallic and cluster compounds has been largely confined to their molecular structure and stereochemistry; their crystal structures and molecular packings have not been studied seriously. However, the extended structure contains information on intermolecular interactions which may be utilized for supramolecular assembly.

Crystal structures of organic and metal-organic compounds have been determined in enormous numbers over the past century, and at the time of writing this review, the Cambridge Structural Database has just crossed the half million mark. The possibility of designing a particular crystal packing is, however, of more recent origin and the subject of
