Eutectics are a long known class of multi-component solids with important and useful applications in daily life. In comparison to other multi-component crystalline solids, such as salts, solid solutions, molecular complexes and cocrystals, eutectics are less studied in terms of molecular structure organization and bonding interactions. Classically, a(More)
2-Methyl-4-(4-methylpiperazin-1-yl)-10H-thieno[2,3-b][1,5]benzodiazepine, C(17)H(20)N(4)S, commonly known as olanzapine, is a psychotropic agent that belongs to the thienobenzodiazepine class of drugs. A new polymorph form IV was obtained upon attempted cocrystallization with nicotinamide in a 1:1 ratio from an ethyl acetate solution. Two butterfly-like(More)
BACKGROUND Localized tenosynovial giant cell tumor of tendon sheath (TGCT-L) is a benign, slowly growing lesion with a peak incidence in the third to fifth decade of life. It is thought to arise from the synovium of tendon sheaths, frequently affecting interphalangeal joints of the hands, feet, ankles and knees. Although the histopathologic appearances are(More)
The antitumor prodrug temozolomide (TMZ) decomposes in aqueous medium of pH≥7 but is relatively stable under acidic conditions. Pure TMZ is obtained as a white powder but turns pink and then brown, which is indicative of chemical degradation. Pharmaceutical cocrystals of TMZ were engineered with safe coformers such as oxalic acid, succinic acid, salicylic(More)
Nitrofurantoin (NF) drug is known to transform to a hydrate form in aqueous medium. The hydration stability and dissolution rate of a few cocrystals of NF were compared with that of its stable β polymorph and hydrate form II. Hydrogen bonding and molecular packing in the novel cocrystal structures were analyzed. Pharmaceutical cocrystals of NF with(More)
The bioactive herbal ingredient curcumin was screened with pharmaceutically acceptable coformers to discover solid-state forms of high solubility. Mechano-chemical grinding of curcumin with cocrystal formers in a fixed stoichiometry ratio resulted in binary eutectic compositions of curcumin-coformer with nicotinamide (1:2), ferulic acid (1:1), hydroquinone(More)
The carboxamide-pyridine N-oxide heterosynthon is sustained by syn(amide)N-H...O-(oxide) hydrogen bond and auxiliary (N-oxide)C-H...O(amide) interaction (Reddy, L. S.; Babu, N. J.; Nangia, A. Chem. Commun. 2006, 1369). We evaluate the scope and utility of this heterosynthon in amide-containing molecules and drugs (active pharmaceutical ingredients, APIs)(More)
The novel carboxamide-pyridine N-oxide synthon, sustained via N-H...O- hydrogen bonding and C-H...O interaction, is shown to assemble isonicotinamide N-oxide in a triple helix architecture and the same heterosynthon is exploited to synthesize cocrystals of barbiturate drugs with 4,4'-bipyridine N,N'-dioxide.
Furosemide was screened in cocrystallization experiments with pharmaceutically acceptable coformer molecules to discover cocrystals of improved physicochemical properties, that is high solubility and good stability. Eight novel equimolar cocrystals of furosemide were obtained by liquid-assisted grinding with (i) caffeine, (ii) urea, (iii) p-aminobenzoic(More)
