Abstract:
In this PhD project, the solvent effects on polymorphism were studied. This was done using an enantiotropic compound. By working at the transition temperature of the compound, it allowed for the separation of supersaturation effects from that of the solvent. p-Aminobenzoic acid was chosen as the model compound. p-Aminobenzoic acid (PABA) is an enantiotropic compound with a transitior temperature of 24°C. It has two polymorphs, a needle shaped α-form which is stable above the transition temperature and a prismatic shaped β-form stable below the transition temperature.
