How molecular crystals are organized.

What is it about?

This publication contains simple explanation how to see organization of molecular crystals and how important different intermolecular interactions are for crystals organization. It is demonstrated that all molecular crystals may be divided into four classes according to basic structural motif of crystal. All intermolecular interactions also play specific role for organization of each crystals according to their energy.

Why is it important?

The most important conclusion of this paper is classification of molecular crystals and intermolecular interactions according to topology (energy and directionality) of intermolecular interactions in crystals.
