Crystalline Polymorphism Emerging from a Milling Induced Amorphous form: The Case of Chlorhexidine Dihydrochloride

Share This Page
 
In this paper, solid state amorphization induced by mechanical milling is shown to be a useful tool to explore the polymorphism of drugs and their mechanism of devitrification. We show in particular how the recrystallization of amorphous chlorhexidine dihydrochloride obtained by milling reveals a complex polymorphism that involves several polymorphic forms. Two new crystalline forms are identified, one of them appearing as a highly disordered precursor state which however clearly differs from the amorphous one.
