About the webinar
Crystallization of small molecules is of great importance across different research fields, including pharmaceutical, food and agrochemical industries. The arrangement of the molecules in the crystal can profoundly influence the physico-chemical properties, manufacturability, stability and other performance characteristics of the compound. Therefore, designing different solid forms with various physical properties can make them more suitable for a certain application. In that respect, Crystal16 is capable to efficiently perform solid form screening and solubility determination as well as to determine the parameters leading to a robust crystallization process.
This webinar offered an occasion of describing how to use Crystal16 as an effective tool for solubility determination, crystal growth and solid form screening. Particularly, the capability of the C16 instrument to efficiently provide novel solid forms and guide their crystallization processes was explored in the case of agrochemical compounds.
This webinar is open to researchers interested in crystallization, looking to solve day to day crystallization challenges and optimize their best practices.
