This contribution covers the identification, understanding, and rationale of the interplay between the choice of mixed solvent on the crystallization of the co-crystal system benzoic acid and isonicotinamide (BZ:INA). A critical first step was gauging the impact of solvent choice and composition on the overall crystallization process, across a number of temperature points. This required defining the solubility and phase diagrams of the co-crystal system at specified temperatures, which reflects the cooling crystallization profile encountered in a batch crystallization step. To this end, identifying and understanding the impact of solvent composition over a selected temperature range on the solubility of co-crystal underpins this contribution.
