High-pressure research of the crystals of or­ganic and coordination compounds is now a well-established field. However, the studies of multicomponent crystals (hydrates, solvates, salts and co-crystals) are just emerging. The aim of this paper is to give a personal view of what makes the multicomponent organic systems peculiar for high-pressure research as compared with the monocomponent ones. Several different types of structure response to compression and reverse decompression are reviewed with examples based on research of salts, co-crystals and hydrates of amino acids. Challenges and prospects of further studies are discussed.

Keywords: high pressure; co-crystals and salts of amino acids; hydrogen bonds; polymorphism; crystal engineering
