A general introduction to the state of the art in modeling metal organic materials using transferable atomic multipoles is provided. The method is based on the building block partitioning of the electron density, which is illustrated with some examples of potential applications and with detailed discussions of the advantages and pitfalls. The interactions taking place between building blocks are summarized and are used to discuss the properties that can be calculated.
