Structural crystallographic studies can determine not only the full stereochemistry of chemical species but also details of their arrangement in the crystal. Such geometrical data provide an essentIAl basis for the interpretation of chemical, physical and biological properties of chemical species. This volume contains key papers presented at the seventh symposium on organic crystal chemistry at Pozna'n in Poland. Among the themes discussed were factors influencing molecular conformation and polymorphism, chemical and biological activity, intermolecular interactions, crystal chemistry of polymers and molecular modelling.

'This book is an excellent introduction to these various applications of crystallographic studies and should be place in the hands of any young person considering a career in crystal chemistry. It is an admirable refutation of the misperception of many scientists that crystallography is a service rather than a scientific study ... carefully prepared and edited ... this volume is important reading for anyone working in the field of crystal chemistry.' Penlope W. Codding
