Diffuse Scattering as an Aid to the Understanding of Polymorphism in Pharmaceuticals

Welberry, Thomas; Chan, Eric; Goossens, Darren; Heerdegen, Aidan


Polymorphism occurs when the same molecular compound can crystallize in more than one distinct crystal structure. Its study is a field of great interest and activity. This is largely driven by its importance in the pharmaceutical industry, but polymorphism is also an issue in the pigments, dyes, and explosives industries. The polymorph formed by a compound generally exerts a strong influence on its solid-state properties. The polymorphic form of a drug molecule may affect the ease of...[Show more]
