The old concept of complementarity, connected with the process of molecular recognition represents a simple approach to understanding molecular assembling. The noncovalent interactions governing (self)assemblies are fundamental to supramolecular chemistry and crystal engineering. Among noncovalent interactions governing molecular assembling, hydrogen bonding plays the leading role. A few examples of molecular assembling relevant to life processes and (bio)nano materials reveal the importance of this phenomenon. Systematic analysis of hydrogen bonding patterns, as a function of proton donor and acceptor properties, and stereochemical parameters, including chirality, is presented for a large number of di(amino acid) and di(amino alcohol) derivatives with oxalyl, phthaloyl, and fumaroyl bridges. Particular attention will be given to the molecular topology of such hydrogen bonded assemblies in terms of crystal engineering.
