The Mehta lab recently published research on "the extent of spontaneous cocrystallization for 14 cocrystal systems, at four levels of humidity. [Their] results show cocrystal formation in all 14 systems to varying extent and are consistent with literature reports that higher humidity correlates with more rapid cocrystal formation."Download at SpringerLink.
For a bit of background on crystal engineering, see the article with that title by Roger Bishop in the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology, online.
