The influence of iodine on the crystal packing of iodo-substituted benzonitriles (2−4) and phenols (5−7) was studied. To analyze the substituent effect, the series was completed, and the crystal structures of iodobenzene (1), m-iodobenzonitrile (3), m-iodophenol (6), and p-iodophenol (7) were determined. Ab initio density functional calculation methods were used to examine the energetic situation and dipole moments of the single molecules in all species.
