Understanding phase transformations of pharmaceuticals is vital to develop safe and effective medicines, for instance ensuring that a medicine is stable on storage or releases a drug into solution at an appropriate rate. Differential scanning calorimetery (DSC) is a powerful technique for such characterisation while X-ray diffraction..
