Polymorphism – the multiplicity of structures or forms – is used in many disciplines. In chemistry it refers to the existence of more than one crystal structure for a particular chemical substance. The last two decades of the 20th century witnessed a sharp increase in the interest in polymorphic systems, as an intrinsically interesting phenomenon and as an increasingly important component in the development and marketing of a variety of materials based on organic molecules. As a result, every pharmaceutical, agrochemical and specialist chemical company needs ‘polymorphism know-how’, so as to be aware of the compounds they sell and of patent issues. Edited by one of the leading experts in the field, this up-to-date handbook fills a need by emphasizing exactly why solid-state issues are important. It demonstrates which approaches should be taken to avoid problems and to exploit the opportunities offered by solid-state properties in the pharmaceutical, agricultural and fine chemical industries. With its practical approach, this is at once a guideline for development chemists just entering this rapidly expanding field as well as a high-quality source of reference material for specialists in the pharmaceutical and chemical industry, structural chemists, physicochemists, crystallographers, inorganic chemists, and patent departments.
