Improved pharmacokinetics of mercaptopurine afforded by a thermally robust hemihydrate

Author affiliations

Abstract

Structural and thermal data were obtained for a novel hemihydrate of 6-mercaptopurine. The hemihydrate shows increased solubility and bioavailability when compared to the monohydrate form, better stability against conversion in aqueous media than the anhydrate form, and a dehydration temperature of 240 °C, the highest of any known hydrate crystal.
