Supramolecular non-covalent interactions, which drive the molecular packing of crystalline functional molecular materials, can be employed as effective tools for mediating magnetic exchange interactions. Specifically, directional hydrogen- and halogen-bonds and pi-pi interactions can be used to design materials in which their magnetic exchange pathways and strength can increasingly be predicted. Specific examples are presented herein and discussed with the aim of gaining deeper insight into the structure-property relationships that provide a powerful tool to afford new materials with unprecedented physical properties.
