Most people are familiar with the fact that diamond and graphite are both composed only of carbon; yet they have very different properties which result from the very different structures of the two solids - they are polymorphs of carbon. Understanding the relationship between the structures and the properties of materials is of fundamental importance in developing and producing new materials with improved or new properties. The existence of polymorphic systems allows the direct study of the connection between structures and properties. This book provides grounding on the fundamental structural and energetic basis for polymorphism, the preparation and characterization of polymorphic substances and its importance in the specific areas of pharmaceuticals, pigments and high energy (explosive) materials. The closing chapter describes the intellectual property implications and some of the precedent patent litigations in which polymorphism has played a central role. The book contains over 2500 references to provide a ready entry into the relevant literature.

Industry Reviews

Review from previous edition Joel Bernstein's book represents the single most important source for the development of critical understanding of polymorphism and its commercial and industrial importance and might well play a decisive role in categorizing and reorganizing problems and endeavours on polymorphism-related research. * Current Engineering Practice *
... clear, vigorous, well-written and very readable ... There seems to be nothing relevant that Bernstein has not included; his scholarship and command and study of the vast literature are remarkable ... an excellent work. * Current Engineering Practice *
... an excellent resource book and a very good read ... can be recommended strongly both for content and interest. * Crystallographic Newsletter *
... a delight to review this eagerly awaited tome ... In the end, the proof of the pudding is in the eating, and in my opinion, Bernstein has served us a nutritional feast here. Enjoy! * Cryst. Growth Des. *
It will be the book, for a long time to come, to which students and researchers will turn with confidence, as well as pleasure, in all questions of polymorphism in molecular crystals. * Structural Chemistry *
