Crystal Engineering Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Crystal Design
Structure and Function
edited by Gautam R. Desiraju

Crystal Design is the first book that emphasises this continuity between what a crystal is and what a crystal can do. Written by experts, this book establishes connections between the structures of molecular materials and their properties and links the domains of intermolecular interactions, crystal structures and crystal properties.

Without interactions there cannot be structures, and without worthwhile properties as a goal, there cannot be sufficient reason for designing structures. The many advances that have been made during this process are described in this book.

This volume concerns methodology and practice, the nuts-and-bolts of crystal engineering. Among the topics covered are network structures, hydrogen bonds as design elements, microporous solids, polymorphism, ferromagnetism and sensors. The systems described cut across traditional organic and inorganic divisions of chemistry.

Contents

  1. Hydrogen Bonds in Inorganic Chemistry: Application to Crystal Design
  2. Molecular Recognition and Self-Assembly Between Amines and Alcohols (Supraminols)
  3. Very Large Supramolecular Capsules Based on Hydrogen Bonding
  4. Molecular Tectonics: Molecular Networks Based on Inclusion Processes
  5. Layered Materials by Design: 2D Coordination Polymeric Networks Containing Large Cavitities/Channels
  6. The Construction of One-, Two- and Three-Dimensional Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Materials from Molecular Building Blocks
  7. A Rational Approach for the Self-Assembly of Molecular Building Blocks in the Field of Molecule-Based Magnetism
  8. Polymorphism, Crystal Transformations and Gas-Solid Reactions
  9. Solid-Gas Interactions Between Small Gaseous Mole cules and Transition Metals in the Solid State. Toward Sensor Applications
