Aldo Domenicano has been a provider and interpreter of structural information on substituent effects, especially in benzene derivatives. He started in X-ray crystallography, continued in gas-phase electron diffraction, and eventually added quantum chemical computations to his arsenal of tools of research. He was a charter member of the Editorial Board of Structural Chemistry; he has served the community in other ways as well, such as with directing international schools and editing monographs. He has also been an esteemed colleague and faithful friend.

This Editorial is a tribute to Aldo Domenicano on the occasion of his 75th birthday for the special collection of articles honoring him.
