A set of com putational procedures is described for the analysis of non-bonded forces in crystalline organic compounds. These methods are applied to the photoreactive compound 2-benzyl-5-benzylidene-cyclopentanone (BBCP) and its derivatives. The influence of substituents on the solid-state reactivities and modes of molecular packing is rationalized and an extension of these ideas to the engineering of solids of desired reactivity is outlined.
