Solid form screen of anti-hyperammonemic drug carglumic acid (CGA) resulted in two polymorphs, Form-I and Form-II. The crystal structure of Form-I is sustained by an acid catemer synthon, whereas Form-II has an acid–amide heterosynthon. Slurry grinding, thermal stress, stability measurements, and DVS analysis confirm the thermodynamic stability of Form-I.

Phthalimides have been successfully synthesized in the solid state by grinding (or kneading) of substituted phthalic anhydride and aniline derivatives. Selected products and intermediates were crystallized and characterized by crystallography leading to a potential rationale for the solid-state reactivity that involves co-crystals as intermediates.
