General principles of the analysis of intermetallic compounds with the program package TOPOS are considered. The nanocluster method is described in detail, which lies in the base of the TOPOS “Nanoclustering” procedure. The applications of the nanocluster method to intermetallic compounds as well as to porous materials are comprehensively overviewed. The perspectives of extending the nanocluster model to other classes of inorganic compounds are outlined.
