Hot Communication: Selective co-crystal formation to remove impurities

Kay Huai-Ying Hsi and colleagues from Massachusetts Institute of Technology detail a strategy for using co-crystallization as a purification method that could be developed for use during the synthesis and manufacturing of pharmaceutical substances and fine chemicals.

This communication will be published as part of a themed issue on crystal engineering and crystallography in the pharmaceutical industry later in the year.  It’s currently free so do take a look!
