Solvent penetration mediated phase transformation for the preparation of aggregated particles with well-defined shape †
We report here a unique method for the preparation of aggregated crystals with well-defined shape and size using a solvent penetration-mediated phase transformation. An unusually fast phase transformation of sulfadiazine was observed. The aggregated sulfadiazine crystals are obtained through a water penetration mediated transformation of sulfadiazine N-methyl pyrrolidone solvate. The aggregated particles keep the same shape and size of the parent crystals.
