Formation and compression characteristics of prismatic polyhedral and thin plate-like crystals of paracetamol.

Prismatic polyhedral crystals of paracetamol were prepared by cooling an aqueous saturated solution of paracetamol from 65 to 25 degrees C. Thin plate-like crystals were prepared by adding a concentrated solution of paracetamol in hot ethanol to water at 3 degrees C. Infrared (IR), X-ray powder diffraction (XPD) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC… CONTINUE READING
