X-ray powder diffraction data of lapatinib ditosylate monohydrate

  • Peter Varlashkin (a1)


The room temperature powder pattern of lapatinib ditosylate monohydrate (active ingredient in Tykerb used to treat refractory breast cancer) was indexed and the cell from the single crystal X-ray diffraction structure was refined using the experimental capillary data. Unit-cell parameters for the orthorhombic compound with space group Pbca refined from powder diffraction data are a=9.6850±0.0009 Å, b=29.364±0.003 Å, and c=30.733±0.003 Å, α=β=γ=90°, z=8, V=8740.1 Å3. Values of 2θ, d, I, and Miller indices are reported.
