Transitions among five polymorphs of chlorpropamide near the melting point
- 155 Downloads
Five polymorphs of chlorpropamide (α, β, δ, γ, and ε) were investigated near the melting point by using DSC. Structure of samples was tested by X-ray powder diffraction. Four first polymorphs were found to transform into ε-polymorph, which melts at Tm=128°C, ΔmH=24 kJ mol−1. Enthalpy of the polymorph transitions ranges from +3 kJ mol−1 for α→ε to −0.8 kJ mol−1 for β→ε.
Structure of three first polymorphs was published elsewhere, and the structure of δ-polymorph is published for the first time. XRPD patterns for all polymorphs are reported, together with the atomic coordinates for the δ-polymorph.
