This volume contains the proceedings from the first DIMACS meeting on discrete mathematical chemistry held at Rutgers University (New Brunswick, NJ). The contributions reflect the presentations and spotlight the breadth of current research on the topic - from the Benzenoid Clar problem to the Wulff-shape of sphere packings. Much of the volume reflects the combined mathematical and physical interest in the new molecules, fullerenes. This DIMACS conference highlighted the range of opportunities for fruitful and informed collaboration across the mathematics-chemistry boundaries. The interdisciplinary nature of the contributions pays testament to the fact that 'real' chemistry and 'real' mathematics do indeed interact.
