In the past decades, molecular crystallography has evolved from being an analytical technique to the status of independent discipline that spans between synthetic chemistry and material science. In this context, a supramolecular approach to solid state crystallography enables the rational design of crystalline materials for the green synthesis, pre-formulation of drug products, molecular separation, and storage. Here an overview of the author’s perspective on the field is presented. In particular, the recent work produced by the Molecular Crystallography Group at the University of Limerick on the improvement of crystalline pharmaceutical forms and soft crystalline materials will be discussed.
