Controlling Crystal Habit With The Choice Of Solvent

The control of crystal morphology is of foremost importance in pharmaceutical industries for drug development. The crystal features and surface properties are the key factors influencing the stability, bioavailability and dissolution properties of an active pharmaceutical ingredient  (API). Knowing and being able to modify the crystal habit during crystallization enhances API production by reducing the downstream processes.
