Electrochemically induced co-crystallisation

Jaroslaw Mazurek, Crystallics’ Senior Principal Scientist, is co-author of a paper focused on cocrystallization combined with electrochemistry for in situ product removal of carboxylic acids. Proof-of-principle was established using a cinnamic acid and 3-nitrobenzamide co-crystal system. The proposed technology might have a future in the industrial bio-based production of essential “green” building blocks.  


The project is a joint partnership between TNO, TU Delft and Crystallics and is a part of a larger co-operation between TU Delft and Crystallics BV in co-crystallization research.  Crystallics’ contribution focused on solving the structure from powder X-ray data collected on a Bruker D8 Advance-AXS system equipped with LynxEye solid state detector. The results proved that co-crystallization is yielding close to 98% of complex and 2% of two cinnamic acid polymorphs.
