Abstract

It has previously been reported that the caffeine : malonic acid co-crystal system forms spontaneously upon the contact of the two materials. Here we studied the crystal growth in this system to rationally define the role that water plays, thus enabling us to monitor the conversion by solid-state NMR and control the kinetics of spontaneous co-crystal production by increasing or decreasing the relative humidity.
