Polymorphism in acesulfame sweetener: structure-property and stability relationships of bending and brittle crystals
2010 (English)In: Chemical Communications, ISSN 1359-7345, E-ISSN 1364-548X, Vol. 46, no 20, 3562-3564 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Acesulfame is found to exist in two crystalline forms of which Form I (needles) shows bending upon mechanical stress. Crystal structures explain their mechanical response. This is the first case of aliphatic organic compounds featuring a bending phenomenon. Form I is physically more stable than Form II in ambient conditions.
