Most active pharmaceutical ingredients are produced in crystalline form to ensure their chemical stability during transportation, packaging and storage. Crystallinity plays an important role in drug dissolution rate, physical and chemical stability, physical properties of tablet compaction and drug bioavailability. Even a small amount of amorphous phase in a crystalline sample may significantly change its physical and chemical properties. Therefore, the crystallinity determination of the active pharmaceutical ingredient is very important to ensure the quality of the final product.
