Antisolvent synthesis of micron scale Griseofulvin was carried out with simultaneous suspension stabilization under low power ultrasonic agitation. The organic solvent plays an important role because the supersaturation could be varied by using different solvents and the physicochemical characteristics of the suspension are also altered, which affects stability. In this study we present the effect of solvents on particle formation, polymorphism and stability of micron scale Griseofulvin formation in aqueous media.
