Structure Prediction Cautionary Tale
A given chemical compound, depending on the conditions, can adopt multiple crystal structures known as polymorphs. Predicting these polymorphs in order to control the crystallization process is a long-sought goal, and it is critical in drug development. But making such predictions remains a tough job. Adam J. Matzger and Saikat Roy of the University of Michigan have taken a close look at the accuracy of predicting polymorphs by revisiting the crystallization of 6-amino-2-phenylsulfonylimino-1,2-dihydropyridine . . .
