Abstract: A detailed structural study and Hirshfeld surface analysis of cabazitaxel in its anhydrous, hydrated and solvated forms have revealed that the three-dimensional architecture of the drug molecule is retained regardless of the crystalline environment. This prompted comparison with its taxane predecessors, suggesting key factors contributing to cabazitaxel's poor affinity to P-gp.
