Alan Eastman’s favorite structure is:

m-Toluic acid

Why

In grad school, the other members of the crystallography class and I solved this structure by direct methods, before the ‘easy’ algorithms were developed. It was a personal triumph, and hooked me forever on the wonder and beauty of crystallography. —Alan Eastman
