Crystalline Molecular Complexes and Compounds

When the properties of the individual components are largely conserved in the primary or intermediate crystalline phases of a two-component (A and B) system, then these phases are called ‘binary adducts’, which is a more formal name for what are usually called ‘molecular compounds and complexes’. The various types of binary adduct are classified in terms of those interactions between the components which determine the component arrangement in the crystal. Thus, A...A interactions dominate in inclusion complexes; A...A and B...B interactions are equally important in segregated-stack charge transfer complexes, all interactions are of roughly equal importance in packing complexes; and A...B interactions dominate in molecular compounds. This classification is compared to other complementary schemes.
