Polymorphism2018-01-12T20:08:32+00:00

A chemical compound that exists in multiple crystalline structures is known as a polymorph, and the existence of these polymorphs can lead to complications in drug efficacy and interactions.  Bioavailability, pharmacokinetics, solubility, stability, and absorption can be adversely affected by polymorphs, as each structure may have physical and chemical properties not conducive for the purpose of the desired compound.  Therefore, polymorphs should be thoroughly evaluated, and the different forms characterized, so that the most stable form can be identified.

In addition, certain polymorphic forms can be considered intellectual property, and as such are subject to IP regulation.  Polymorphic screening can protect an active pharmaceutical ingredient as your IP if you are the originator.

Our scientists can perform exhaustive and effective polymorph screens for you to determine which crystalline form will meet your project objectives.
