Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue’s aim is to present state-of-the-art information in the fields of polymorphism and pseudopolymorphism, which are still hot topics from a scientific and especially from an industrial viewpoint. Knowledge in both fields of crystalline forms of pharmaceutical substances, i.e., active pharmaceutical ingredients and excipients, has been built for years. With new instrumental techniques, novel and more and more complex chemical substances used in the pharmaceutical and chemical industry, and increased regulatory and industrial demands, there is still a great need for expansion of the knowledge base in the field of polymorphism and pseudopolymorphism.

The Special issue aims to help readers from research institutions and the pharmaceutical and chemical industry to update their knowledge with new information and data. Manuscripts dealing with the polymorphism and pseudopolymorphism of pharmaceutical substances from a theoretical and practical viewpoint are welcomed.

Prof. Dr. Franc Vrečer
Guest Editor
