Our History

WHERE we started: We began as a start-up business from the University of Bologna, the capital and largest city of the Emilia-Romagna Region in Northern Italy. WHEN we started: In 2005 PolyCrystalLine was self-founded by a group of young scientistsfrom the Molecular Crystal Engineering Group of UNIBO. WHY we started: This was is response to the increasing interest from the pharmaceutical industry of a hi-tech partner specialized in solid-state chemistry able to design and control the properties of API and drug
