Abstract

Supersaturated aqueous solutions of glycine exposed to intense pulses of plane-polarized laser light at 1.06 μm unexpectedly crystallized into the polar γ-polymorph of glycine. Control solutions not exposed to the laser always produced crystals of α-glycine, the expected and most stable form. This result suggests a new approach to polymorph control and possibly a means to produce new polymorphs.
