How well do we currently understand the aggregation
of small molecules in the solid state?
intermolecular interactions are not very strong and their formation
is related to and affected by small changes in the molecular
structure and the crystallisation conditions. Continuing our
investigations on aggregation of substituted aromatic molecules in
the solid state, we study the influence and boundaries of weak
directing substituents like deuterium on the aggregation of
Hydrogen/deuterium (H/D)-exchange, the
smallest possible modification of a molecule, is generally seen as a
non dominating parameter in the formation of crystal
structures of chemical compounds. On the other hand, we can show
that the aggregation of specific molecules in the solid state is
very sensitive on small changes of the isotopic
substitution pattern of the molecules.
