Here we highlight a paper by authors at Universidad de los Andes, Universidad Industrial de Santander and Universidad Santo Tomás using the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) and the Hydrogen Bond Propensity (HBP) tool to characterize two polymorphs of an anti-inflammatory drug and predict the existence of additional forms. This is part of our series highlighting examples of the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) tools in action by scientists around the world.
Here we summarise a publication from our collaboration with Pfizer, which demonstrates the use of the healthcheck methodology to reduce risk and select the most stable form across three different APIs.
Here we spotlight a recent publication which shows how CSD data supported a team from Novartis and NanoMEGA to analyse a metastable form of the antihistamine drug Loratadine. Part of our series highlighting examples of our data and software in use around the world.
The field of Crystal Structure Prediction (CSP) has grown dramatically over the last few decades, but today I want to highlight a recent paper which takes a new approach. The recent publication from Montis et al makes use of new informatics tools to assess surface roughness (rugosity) and proposes a relationship between this and ease of crystallisation.
