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.
