Weak intermolecular interactions as explored by the DFG Research Unit 618 determine the aggregation of molecules in all states: gas, liquid and in the solid, and are presented in this special section (p. 799–856). Acetylene, as the smallest organic molecule capable of hydrogen-bond formation, is the subject of numerous studies, including co-crystallization with many kinds of partners. Complexes of a small number of molecules are used as models to understand the nucleation of crystals. Roland Boese and Christian Radek are credited for the picture and accompanying text.
