Depending on what you want to do with them, there's a range of possible
small molecule crystal structures. Crown ether/cryptands and
cyclodextrins have been used as complexing agents for a range of
compounds, there are several crystal structures of various chiral
resolving agents with amino acids, and there was a series of structures
a while back from (I think) Inoue and Ishida where they had
co-crystallised aromatic amino acids with nucleotide derivatives.
