Rifampicin is a first-line drug widely used in the treatment of tuberculosis both in the intensive and in the treatment phase. In this work we characterized the crystal structure of form I of anhydrous rifampicin mainly by using X-ray powder diffraction data combined with the Rietveld method. Other complementary techniques such as Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and thermal analysis were also employed. It crystallized in a monoclinic crystal system with space group C2 and the following unit cell parameters: a = 25.8846(2) angstrom, b = 14.2965(2) angstrom, c = 14.2796(2) angstrom, beta = 122.98(1)degrees, V = 4432.81(7) angstrom(3), Z = 4, Z' = 1 and rho(calc) = 1.23310(2) g cm(-3). A BFDH model was used to inspect the crystal morphology prediction, and great similarity with crystals observed on an optical microscope was found. The FTIR spectrum confirmed the results obtained by X-ray powder diffraction, which indicates that all the functional groups involved in H bonding are intramolecularly connected. This polymorphic form presented a thermal stability up to approximately 230 degrees C. (AU)
