Mechanical behaviour, crystal structure and tabletability

This article is HOT as recommended by the referees. And we’ve made it free to access for 4 weeks.

Shearing, bending or brittle?

Shearing, bending or brittle?

C. Malla Reddy and colleagues study polymorphic forms of 6-chloro-2,4-dinitroaniline to demonstrate a direct relationship between mechanical properties, crystal structure and tableting behaviour in this HOT CrystEngComm communication.  Understanding the structure-property relationships ocurring in pharmaceuticals and using this knowledge to eliminate inferior active pharmaceutical ingredient properties could play an important role in reducing formulation and manufacturing costs in the industry.

Why not take a look, they will be free to read for 4 weeks.
