This work deals with the spectroscopic (supported by quantum chemistry calculations), structural, and morphological characterization of mefenamic acid (2-{[}(2,3-(dimethylphenyl)amino] benzoic acid) polymorphs, known as forms I and II. Polymorph I was obtained by recrystallization in ethanol, while form II was reached by heating form I up to 175 degrees C, to promote the solid phase transition. Experimental and theoretical vibrational band assignments were performed considering the presence of centrosymmetric dimers. Besides band shifts in the 3345-3310 cm(-1) range, important vibrational modes to distinguish the polymorphs are related to out-of-phase and in-phase N-H bending at 1582 (Raman)/1577 (IR) cm(-1) and 1575 (Raman)/1568 (IR) cm(-1) for forms I and II, respectively. In IR spectra, bands assigned to N-H bending out of plane are observed at 626 and 575 cm(-1) for polymorphs I and II, respectively. Solid-state C-13 NMR spectra pointed out distinct chemical shifts for the dimethylphenyl group: 135.8 to 127.6 ppm (carbon bonded to N) and 139.4 to 143.3 ppm (carbon bonded to methyl group) for forms I and II, respectively.
