Solid state structures of p-cresol revisited


The two previously reported solid state forms of p-cresol are revisited and detailed structural analysis, thermal analysis, lattice energy calculations and variable temperature powder X-ray diffraction are presented. A possible mechanism for the transformation from form II to form I is proposed.
