A broad overview is presented about the importance of molecular structure determination and about the structural considerations that come in view when molecular units build assemblies. Structural chemistry and crystallography constitute an integral part of today's supramolecular chemistry as demonstrated by various statements of giants of the field. The challenge of supramolecular chemistry to the structural chemist is in detecting and understanding the structural changes accompanying molecular recognition and assembly formation and in providing assistance for the design of new assemblies and molecular devices with desired properties.
