Polymer templating of supercooled indomethacin for polymorph selection.
Summary of "Polymer templating of supercooled indomethacin for polymorph selection."
Reported here is a relatively simple technique for polymorph screening of pharmaceutical compounds that are thermally stable. Polymer libraries have previously been used as surfaces to influence, or direct, the crystalline form adopted by an active pharmaceutical ingredient on crystallization from solution. In this current work, we demonstrate the polymorph-directing effect of homopolymer surfaces in the absence of solvent by recrystallization from the supercooled melt. When the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug indomethacin is melted, cooled, and subsequently reheated above its glass transition temperature on an untreated surface, it has a proclivity to crystallize as its δ polymorph. On certain polymer surfaces, however, it preferentially crystallizes as the α polymorph, as a direct result of polymer templating. The method is well-suited to implementation in multiwell plate formats requiring only small amounts of material and enabling multiple experiments to be carried out in parallel with samples readily characterized using X-ray powder diffraction.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Strongly cationic polymer that binds to certain proteins; used as a marker in immunology, to precipitate and purify enzymes and lipids. Synonyms: aziridine polymer; Epamine; Epomine; ethylenimine polymer; Montrek; PEI; Polymin(e).
Insurance Selection Bias
Adverse of favorable selection bias exhibited by insurers or enrollees resulting in disproportionate enrollment of certain groups of people.
Glass Ionomer Cements
A polymer obtained by reacting polyacrylic acid with a special anion-leachable glass (alumino-silicate). The resulting cement is more durable and tougher than others in that the materials comprising the polymer backbone do not leach out.
Mating Preference, Animal
The selection or choice of sexual partner in animals. Often this reproductive preference is based on traits in the potential mate, such as coloration, size, or behavioral boldness. If the chosen ones are genetically different from the rejected ones, then NATURAL SELECTION is occurring.
The introduction of error due to systematic differences in the characteristics between those selected and those not selected for a given study. In sampling bias, error is the result of failure to ensure that all members of the reference population have a known chance of selection in the sample.
