Filing Date:Jun 05, 2002
Application Number:10/481,270
Claims:1. A process for preparing 1-[4-(5-cyanoindol-3-yl)butyl]-4-(2-carbamoyl-benzofuran-5-yl)-piperazine hydrochloride anhydrate in its crystalline modification IV, having characteristic x-ray diffraction peaks at 6,102, 5,246, 4,695, and 3,615 d(.ANG.), comprising: drying Form V of 1-[4-(5-cyanoindol-3-yl)butyl]-4-(2-carbamoyl-benzofuran-5-yl)-piperazine hydrochloride monohydrate, having characteristic x-ray diffraction peaks at 6,807, 4,563, 4,416, and 3,503 d(.ANG.), in vacuo at temperatures of 85.degree. to 90.degree. C.

2. A process according to claim 1, wherein Form V is prepared by: (1) dispersing 1-[4-(5-cyanoindol-3-yl)butyl]-4-(2-carbamoyl-benzofuran-5-yl)-piperazine in tetrahydrofuran (2) converting the 1-[4-(5-cyanoindol-3-yl)butyl]-4-(2-carbamoyl-benzofuran-5-yl)-piperazine base, by addition of aqueous hydrochloric acid into the hydrochloride salt (3) precipitation of Form V at room temperature (4) recovering the precipitated 1-[4-(5-cyanoindol-3-yl)butyl]-4-(2-carbamoyl-benzofuran-5-yl)-piperazine hydrochloride monohydrate by filtration.
