Abstract  

Polymorphism of trilaurin mixed with 4% of cholesterol was studied with a setup coupling calorimetry and phase characterisation by in-situ X-ray diffraction (Microcalix). Four polymorphic forms were identified. Monotropic and enantiotropic transitions were identified from the reconstruction of Gibbs free energy diagram which allows the control of trilaurin polymorphism.
