3-(6-Methoxypyridin-3-yl)-5-(4-methylsulfonyl phenyl)-pyridin-2-amine (MMP) is a member of a novel class of orally active antimalarial drugs. This aminopyridine molecule has shown potent in vitro antiplasmodial activity and in vivo antimalarial activity in Plasmodium berghei-infected mice. The aqueous solubility of this molecule is, however, limited.

Thus investigations aimed at improving the physicochemical properties, including solubility, of MMP were accordingly conducted. Five salts of MMP were formed with co-former molecules saccharin, salicylic acid, fumaric acid, oxalic acid and suberic acid, but a cocrystal was obtained when the co-former adipic acid was employed.

All these new multi-component systems have been…
