Molecular geometries for a variety of classes of compounds are discussed. Where available, the structures of free molecules are compared with those in the crystal. Information inferred about intermolecular interactions are augmented with observations on structural consequences of dimerization and complex formation. Examples include substituted benzenes, sulfones, siloxane derivatives, metal halides, group four dihalides, tetrahaloaluminates, and donor-acceptor complexes.
