This chapter discusses the ways in which the present techniques and tools of charge density analysis can contribute to the burgeoning field of crystal engineering. The principal focus is on use of theoretical and experimental charge densities, Hirshfeld surface analysis, as well as the calculation of energies of intermolecular interactions and their application to halogen bonded systems.
