Polymorphism of L-Tryptophan: data

Okba Al Rahal, Colan E Hughes, P Andrew Williams, Andrew J Logsdail, Yael Diskin-Posner & Kenneth D M Harris
A new polymorph of L‑tryptophan has been prepared by crystallization from the gas phase, with structure determination carried out directly from powder XRD data augmented by periodic DFT-D calculations. The new polymorph (denoted β) and the previously reported polymorph (denoted α) are both based on alternating hydrophilic and hydrophobic layers, but with substantially different hydrogen-bonding arrangements. The β polymorph exhibits the energetically favourable L2-L2 hydrogen-bonding arrangement, which is unprecedented for amino acids with aromatic side-chains;...
