The question of determining the geometry of ALn systems is approached by examining the interactions within a molecule. The consequences of assuming that LL interactions dominate the orientation of Ls around A in ALn are explored. Successful application to a wide range of AL2, AL3, AL4, AL5, AL6, lithium oxides and xenon compounds, including excited states, radicals and charged systems is presented.
