Described in this thesis are the results of research on three main problems. These three problems are separated into Parts I, II and III, which contain reports on investigations into the crystal and molecular structures of ovalene, perylene and octamethylnaphthalene respectively, by means of X-ray diffraction methods. The appendix contains a short account of the crystal structure of benzfurazane oxide. Part I. The crystal and molecular structure of ovalene has been determined by quantitative X-ray analysis. The monoclinic crystals, space group P21/a , have two centro-symmetrical molecules of C32 H14 per unit cell, and the structure resembles that of coronene. The cell dimensions of a = 19.47A, b = 4.70A, c = 10.12A and beta = 105.0
