The number of molecules identified hitherto is over 12 million. Molecular materials composed of these molecules are diverse in their structures and properties and have many possibilities for future development. Generally speaking there are two fundamental aspects of investigating molecular materials. One is to study the structures and properties of molecules themselves as precisely and systematically as possible, focusing on the behavior of atoms and electrons within the molecules and to deduce fundamental concepts controlling molecular structures and properties. The other is to study structures and properties of molecular solids and liquids as molecular assemblies, paying special attention to the behavior of the component molecules and their interactions.
