Crystalline Molecular Complexes and Compounds

Frank H. Herbstein

Oxford University Press

The history of our subject goes back to the beginning of the 19th century, although the compounds concerned remained curiosities outside the mainstream of the development of chemistry until the first structures were determined by X-ray diffraction in the 1940s. There is now an explosion of interest and application, ranging from condensed-matter physics to structural biology.

Keywords:   19th century, X-ray diffraction, chemistry, condensed-matter physics, structural biology
