Multi-component crystalline systems or co-crystals have received tremendous attention from academia and industry alike in the past decade. Applications of co-crystals are varied and are likely to positively impact a wide range of industries dealing with molecular solids. Co-crystallization has been used to improve the properties and performance of materials from pharmaceuticals to energetic materials, as well as for separation of compounds.
This book combines co-crystal applications of commercial and practical interest from diverse fields in to a single volume. It also examines effective structural design of co-crystals, and provides insights into practical synthesis and characterization techniques. Providing a useful resource for postgraduate students new to applied co-crystal research and crystal engineering, it will also be of interest to established researchers in academia or industry.
