Much of the existing literature dealing with crystalline aspirin is vague or ambiguous with regard to indexing of the crystal faces. The inconsistency with which the indices of the dominant faces have been assigned leads to confusion in analysis of surface properties. To clarify this, we have conducted crystal growth experiments on aspirin, and indexed the crystal faces with X-ray diffraction (XRD), paying special attention to the placement of symmetry elements. The space group was confirmed as… CONTINUE READING
