Crystalline Molecular Complexes and Compounds: Structures and Principles

Frank H. Herbstein


This book presents a rational classification of the vast amount of material in literature followed by a sketch of the historical background. The structures and properties of the various kinds of crystalline inclusion complexes are described in some detail, distinguishing among container-molecule hosts, such as the cyclodextrins, clathrates, linear tunnel inclusion complexes, and two-dimensional intercalation complexes. Together with material on packing complexes, this comprises the first half. The second half contains descriptions of molecular compounds based on localized and delocalized inter ... More

Keywords: rational classification, historical background, crystalline molecular complexes, crystalline molecular compounds, binary adducts, inclusion complexes, charge-transfer compounds
