PHA-739521 is an experimental compound that exhibits polymorphism. The two anhydrous crystal forms, I and II, are characterized using powder X-ray diffractometry, thermal analyses, moisture sorption gravimetry. Both Forms I and II are non-hygroscopic and are stable to compaction pressure. The melting temperature is about 152 °C for Form I and 168 °C for Form II. Forms I and II are enantiotropically related where Form I is more stable below a transition temperature of approximately 70 °C. Crystallization behavior of this compound from solutions and during heating is also studied. Information obtained is used to design an appropriate crystallization process to successfully manufacture desired polymorph at large scale.
