21 21 Synthesis of 4’-Me-5-norMe-ROY 98.4g (53%) 46.8g (18%) ca 36g (14%) a a: Needs further purification

22 22 Polymorph Discovery Simple heat-cool method Evaporation method Vapor diffusion method Hotstage/melt methods Vapor deposition method Rapidly changing the solvent by pouring the solution into anti-solvent Even for solvent based methods there are > 700,000 experiments Need rational approach Vapor diffusion Vapor depostion

23 23 Initial crystallization studies gave only a red form (R4’M5N). Is this the first ROY derivative with only one form? Red Form R4’M5N R4’M5N

24 24 Seeding with other ROY Derivatives Using yellow needles of 5-Et-ROY as seed crystals Slow evaporation method in EtOH at room temperature afforded orange form (O4’M5N).  Not cocrystal  Pure orange form Y5ET O4’M5N

32 32 Conclusion Fourth derivative of simple ROY has been newly synthesized. In initial polymorph study, various crystallization conditions gave only a red form (R4’M5N). Seeding with another ROY (Y5ET) afforded new form (orange form, O4’M5N). Solubility studies showed that the new form (O4’M5N) is the most stable form at room temperature The red and orange forms are enantiotropic Red form adopts the most planar conformation among ROY compounds.

33 33 Strategies to Find New Forms Guillory methods Seeding with related compounds Templated crystallization (Epitaxial growth) Ultrasound, Lasers Capillary crystallization  Studied 18 top selling drugs  The form on the market is most stable  Found new forms in 13 cases Only 4 are solvates In 9 of the 13 cases, the new forms could also be made by other methods (Barbara Stahly)

34 34 Why Capillaries? supersaturation ratios as high as 60 have been achieved (Ken Morris)

35 35 Plots of Fraction of Most Stable Form vs Supersaturation for two conditions: (top) 50 mg/mL; and (bottom) 100 mg/mL. As supersaturation increases fraction of most stable form decreases Childs, Crystal Growth & Design, 4, 441 (2004)
