Solubility, Polymorphism, Crystallinity, Crystal Habit, and Drying Scheme of (R, S)-(±)-Sodium Ibuprofen Dihydrate

The racemic compound (R, S)-()-ibuprofen is a popular and well understood active pharmaceutical ingredient, but it has several disadvantageous formulation properties such as poor solubility, low melting point, and potential esterification with excipients containing an hydroxyl group. The authors investigate the use of an (R, S)-()-ibuprofen salt to evaluate these problems using various analytical methods to determine the polymorphism, crystallinity, and drying scheme.

Solubility, Polymorphism, Crystallinity, and Crystal Habit of Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen by Initial Solvent Screening

Oct 2, 2006

Solubility, polymorphism, crystallinity, and crystal habit of acetaminophen and racemic (+/-)-ibuprofen were determined by initial screening of 23 solvents for scale-up. Solubility curves were constructed, and solubility at 25 degrees Celsius was plotted against the dielectric constants of various solvent as a fingerprint for solute identification. The total "form space" for acetaminophen and racemic (+/-)-ibuprofen were calculated to be 222 and 257, respectively. Various crystal habits and sizes for ibuprofen and acetaminophen were observed.
