Crystal Structure Prediction (CSP) methods were developed on the assumption that an organic molecule would crystallize in its most stable crystal structure. Even implementing this approach is a challenge to computational chemistry methods,[1] as shown by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre’s blind tests.[2] Polymorphism adds additional challenges, as this is usually a kinetic phenomenon with ...
