Extended motifs from water and chemical functional groups in organic molecular crystals

Author affiliations

Abstract

The probability of organic compounds crystallising as hydrates increases with increasing number of polar chemical groups in the molecule. The extended patterns of H-bonding involving chemical groups and water molecules have been studied and classified. The most frequent ring, chain, tape and layer patterns displayed between the water molecules alone in organic molecular crystals are also predominant patterns in the larger H-bond network when other donor/acceptors are included.
