Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
Two of the three earlier reported polymorphic forms of 4-methoxy-3-nitrobenzaldehyde have been reinvestigated and fully characterized by a variety of methods including variable temperature powder X-ray diffraction, vibrational spectroscopy (infrared and Raman), calorimetry (differential scanning calorimetry, DSC), and optical microscopy. Differences of DSC thermograms, which were carried out with different cooling rates, suggest a thermodynamic/kinetic competition in the crystallization from the melt. The crystal structures of these two forms have been solved, one by single-crystal methods and the second from synchrotron powder diffraction.
