Naphthalene derivatives with laterally orientated short side chains readily form cocrystals with octafluoronaphthalene in which the position and the length of the lateral chain can control the 1:1 and 2:1 cocrystallization stoichiometries and overlapped areas of the π-planes, showing that the systematic substitution patterns in the chains of molecules can be exploited to rationally designed cocrystals.
