Questions relating to the prediction of the crystal structure or
structures of a given organic molecule may be more gainfully reversed so
that retrosynthetic analysis of a target crystal network leads to the
identification of molecular precursors. Crystal engineering is solid state
supramolecular synthesis and supramolecular synthons, units formed by
synthetic operations involving intermolecular interactions, may be used to
focus efforts in such logic-driven retrosynthesis.
