Abstract:

The correlation between the crystal habit and the compn. of cholesterol crystals formed in 4 org. solvents (MeOH, MeCN, EtOH, and acetone) was studied. Anhyd. and monohydrate cholesterol were pptd. in anhyd. and aq. org. solvent mixts., resp. The appearance of plates does not automatically guarantee the presence of hydrated cholesterol, and the presence of 5% or more of water in the crystn. solvent may not result in the formation of monohydrate cholesterol.
