This volume, containing 27 chapters, provides a state-of-the-art account of the chemistry of solid-state supramolecular systems. Following a valuable introductory chapter reviewing important general principles, the coherent coverage is structured in the form of a series of contributions all written by experts in the respective areas comprehensively described. Throughout the volume, emphasis is placed not only on the design and structure of new host systems but also on practical applications of these novel materials in real chemical situations. The crystal engineering methods described relate to the synthesis of both organic and inorganic tailor-made hosts. Also the reader is presented with highly relevant descriptions of thermodynamic and kinetic considerations germane to the formation crystalline inclusion compounds. The final chapter gives a fascinating account of the self-organisation of molecules in two and three dimensions, crucially important to any process of crystal nucleation.
