PHM1213 Physical Pharmacy 1 2008/915 Crystallisation Crystallisation steps from solution:- 1. 1. Supersaturation of the solution e.g. cooling, evaporation, addition of precipitant or chemical reaction 2. 2. Formation of crystal nuclei e.g. collision of molecules, deliberate seeding 3. 3. Crystal growth around the nuclei
PHM1213 Physical Pharmacy 1 2008/916 Crystal Growth Steps involved: 1. 1. Transport of molecules to the surface 2. 2. Arrangement in the lattice Degree of agitation in the system affects the diffusion coefficient, thus affects crystal growth.
PHM1213 Physical Pharmacy 1 2008/917 Precipitation 1. 1. Induced by altering pH of solution to reach saturation solubility. 2. 2. By chemical reaction to produce precipitate from a homogeneous solution. The rate of reaction is important in determining habit.
PHM1213 Physical Pharmacy 1 2008/918 Crystallization from Supersaturated Solutions of Sodium Acetate end lecture here Description: A supersaturated solution of sodium acetate is crystallized by pouring it onto a seed crystal, forming a stalagmite-like solid. Heat is radiated from the solid. Handbook for Teachers of Chemistry Source: Shakhashiri, B.Z. Chemical Demonstrations: A Handbook for Teachers of Chemistry

PHM1213 Physical Pharmacy 1 2008/922 Crystal Habits Variation in size Number of faces Kind of faces Habits describe the overall shape of the crystal e.g. acicular (needle), prismatic, pyramidal, tabular, equant, columnar & lamellar types.
PHM1213 Physical Pharmacy 1 2008/923 Factors affecting types of habits Temperature Solvent Crystal growth rate e.g. at high rate, acicular form of phenylsalicylate is formed Viscosity e.g. less viscous media favours coarse and equidimensional forms of minerals Addition of impurities e.g.sulfonic acid dyes alter habits of ammonium, sodium and potassium nitrates Presence of surfactants e.g. anionic & cationic surfactants on adipic acid crystals
PHM1213 Physical Pharmacy 1 2008/924 ACICULAR Long and needle-like, thinner than prismatic but thicker than fibrous. Natrolite crystals can be good examples of acicular crystals.prismaticfibrous Natrolite EQUANT Any three perpendicular axis through the crystal are more or less equal. Can be used to describe rounded as well as angular crystals. Fluorite forms crystals that are a good example of equant crystals.Fluorite
PHM1213 Physical Pharmacy 1 2008/925 PRISMATIC One of the most common of crystal habits. Prismatic crystals are "pencil-like", elongated crystals that are thicker than needles (see acicular). Indicolite (a variety of elbaite) forms good examples of prismatic crystals. acicularIndicoliteelbaite TABULAR Book-like (tablets) that are thicker than platy but not as elongated as bladed. Wulfenite forms crystals that are a good example of tabular crystals.platybladed Wulfenite

PHM1213 Physical Pharmacy 1 2008/928 Polymorphisms When compounds crystallise as different polymorphs, properties change. Molecules arrange in two or more ways in the crystal: packed differently in crystal lattice, different orientation, different in conformation of molecules at lattice site. X-ray diffraction patterns change.
