A new class of deep eutectic solvents are presented where one component of the system is inherently volatile, enabling a premeditated, auto-destructive capability which leads inexorably to a series of novel crystal structures. These volatile deep eutectic solvents are easily-formed liquids with a greatly depressed melting point and exhibit all of the physical characteristics of classical deep eutectic solvents, with the exception that the hydrogen-bond donor component is volatile when exposed…

Liquid pharmaceuticals formulation by eutectic formation
Abstract The amphiphilic nature of many pharmaceutical active ingredients often makes them difficult to solubilise and leads to significant wastage through non-optimal dosage. In this study it is

The efficiency of THEDES as a new formulation for the enhancement of the bioavailability of APIs by changing the physical state of the molecules from a solid dosage to a liquid system is demonstrated.
Mechanochemically Induced Conversion of Crystalline Benzamide Polymorphs by Seeding.
A complete transformation of form I into the metastable form III by mechanochemical treatment has been achieved and nicotinamide molecules were incorporated statistically in the crystal lattice of benzamide form III during the conversion.
Mesoscopic Solute-Rich Clusters in Olanzapine Solutions
An organic molecule may crystallize in numerous distinct lattices, and the slow and unpredictable transitions between multiple crystal forms are a significant concern in its pharmaceutical
Design of controlled release systems for THEDES-Therapeutic deep eutectic solvents, using supercritical fluid technology.
A therapeutic DES based on ibuprofen, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), and menthol was synthesized and its thermal behavior was analyzed by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), providing important clues for the development of carriers for the sustainable delivery of bioactive compounds.
Physicochemical characterization of the orthorhombic polymorph of paracetamol crystallized from solution.
This paper describes a method for the laboratory-scale crystallization of the orthorhombic polymorph (form II) of paracetamol (acetaminophen) from solution and compares the solid-state properties of form II with those of form I, with particular emphasis on the crystallography, crystal morphology, thermal behavior, and compaction properties.
Mechanically Induced Amorphization of Drugs: A Study of the Thermal Behavior of Cryomilled Compounds
It was seen that compounds which have high surface crystallization tendency will exhibit the double exotherm during heating, and surface crystal growth rates around Tg were found to be highest for compounds showing the doubleExotherm in the DSC.
Iterative high-throughput polymorphism studies on acetaminophen and an experimentally derived structure for form III.
Three crystal forms of acetaminophen were prepared and characterized using a newly developed high-throughput crystallization platform, CrystalMax, and one structure suggested has a bilayer motif, held together by O-H...O(H) hydrogen bonds, and helps explain the difficulty associated with preparing this form from solution.
Sonocrystallization yields monoclinic paracetamol with significantly improved compaction behavior.
Ultrasound-assisted crystallization (sonocrystallization) was used to prepare a mixture of nano- and micrometer-sized crystals of the monoclinic form of paracetamol, leading to enhanced tabletability without the use of excipients, particle coating, salt, or cocrystal formation.
