High thermal stability, pH responsive organogels of 2H-benzo[d]1,2,3-triazole derivatives as pharmaceutical crystallization media
2H-Benzo[d]1,2,3-triazole derivatives with a range of chemical functionalities showed significant organogel formation, particularly bis-amide derivative 4e which gave robust thermally stable gels, in a range of solvents down to 0.1 wt%. The gelators proved responsive under pH stimuli or to the presence of metal cations. The gels also proved to be useful vehicles to crystallize pharmaceutical drugs, resulting in a change in polymorphic outcome in the case of sulfathiazole compared to the solution crystallization outcome.
