1. A method for the production of crystals of N-(trans-4-isopropylcyclohexylcarbonyl)-D-phenylalanine having at least one of the following properties:

  • (a) a melting point in the range of 136°



    (b) a powder X-ray diffraction pattern with reflection maxima at 2θ

    of about 8.1°

    , 13.1°

    , 19.6° and



    comprising dissolving or suspending N-(trans-4-isopropylcyclohexylcarbonyl)-D-phenylalanine in a solvent in which it is completely or incompletely soluble at a temperature of at least 10°

    C. and up to the boiling point of the solvent and permitting said crystals to crystallize from or form in said solvent at a temperature of 10°

    C. or in excess thereof.
