X-ray Powder Diffraction Pattern Indexing for Pharmaceutical Applications

Indexing is the process of determining the size, shape and symmetry of the crystallographic unit cell for a crystalline component responsible for a set of peaks in an X-ray powder-diffraction (XRPD) pattern. The authors discuss the valuable information that can be obtained from indexing and its applications in routine screening and analysis of solid forms.
