Co-crystallisation at high pressure—an additional tool for the preparation and study of co-crystals

Author affiliations

Abstract

Crystallisation of paracetamol and piperazine from ethanol at a pressure of 0.57 GPa produced an ethanol solvate of a 2 : 1 co-crystal of paracetamol : piperazine. This contrasts with crystallisation from ethanol at ambient pressure for which only an unsolvated 2 : 1 co-crystal of paracetamol : piperazine has been obtained. The hydrogen bonding arrangements of the two compounds are very different and a striking feature of the solvate is the presence of an unusually short hydrogen bond between the phenolic and amine groups.
