Special Issue in Pharmaceutics: Controlled Crystallization of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients, 2nd Edition
Crystallization is an important separation process that generates crystalline materials with high purity and yield. In the area of pharmaceutical research, crystallization of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) has been vigorously studied because of its great influence on the physicochemical properties of APIs. Size, shape, and phase of the crystals are some of the features frequently controlled during crystallization and they are closely related to the solubility, dissolution rate, and stability of the resulting API solid forms.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a forum for researchers in the broad field of pharmaceutical crystallization. While the focus is specifically on the crystallization of APIs, this Special Issue is open to original research and review articles on all aspects of pharmaceutical crystallization.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Pharmaceutics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
