Recent reports on various aspects of chemistry of phthalimide are being reviewed. The emerging development of supramolecular aspects of phthalimide derivatives are critically analyzed by examining the structures of host-guest complexes and also inorganic complexes. The role of weak interactions in deciding structures in solid states is discussed to reveal meta-stable species involved in nucleation process.
