BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The compound {2-[l-(3,5-bis-trifluoromethyI-benzyl)-5-pyridin-4-yl-lH-[l,2,3]triazol-4-yI]-pyridin-3-yl}-(2-chlorophenyl)-methanone was first described in United States Application No. 60/376,121 (PCT published application WO03/091226). Because the compound is an inhibitor of the NK-1 subtype of tachykinin receptor, the compound is useful for the treatment of disorders associated with an excess of tachykinins. For instance, the compound is useful for depression, including major depressive disorder; anxiety, including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, and social phobia or social anxiety disorder; schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, including bipolar disorder; neurodegenerative disorders such as dementia, including senile dementia of the Alzheimer's type or Alzheimer's disease; disorders of bladder function such as bladder detrusor hyper-reflexia and incontinence, including urge incontinence; emesis, including chemotherapy-induced nausea and acute or delayed emesis; pain or nociception; disorders associated with blood pressure, such as hypertension; disorders of blood flow caused by vasodilation and vasospastic diseases, such as angina, migraine, and Reynaud's disease; hot flushes; acute and chronic obstructive airway diseases such as adult respiratory distress syndrome, bronchopneumonia, bronchospasm, chronic bronchitis, drivercough, and asthma; inflammatory diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease; gastrointestinal

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
A number of methods are available to characterize crystalline forms of organic compounds. For example, these methods include differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetric analysis, moisture sorption/desorption, 13C Cross polarization / magic angle spinning (CP/MAS) nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (solid-state NMR or SSNMR), and X-ray powder diffraction. Of these methods, X-ray powder diffraction and solid state NMR spectroscopy are very useful for identifying and distinguishing between crystalline forms, based on their long- and short-range order, respectively.
Analysis of each of these parameters indicates that the crystalline form of {2-[l-(3,5-bistrifluoromethylbenzyl)-5-pyridin-4-yl-1H-[1,2,3]triazol-4-yl]-pyridin-3-yl}-(2-chlorophenyl)-methanone originally resulting from the process described in United States Application No. 60/376,121 (WO03/091226) (Form I) is different than the two novel crystalline forms (Form IV and Form V) described herein. Variations in the characteristics of Form I versus Form IV or Form V are discussed in greater detail below.

X-Ray Powder Diffraction
X-ray powder diffraction patterns were obtained on a Siemens D5000 X-ray powder diffractometer, equipped with a CuKa source (l = 1.54056 Å) and a Kevex solid-state Si(Li) detector, operating at 50 kV and 40 mA. Each sample was scanned between 3° and 40° in 2q, with a step size of 0.02 in 2q and a minimum scan rate of 9.0 second/step, with 1 mm divergence and receiving slits and a 0.1 mm detector slit.
It is well known in the crystallography art that for any given crystal form, the relative intensities and peak widths of the diffraction peaks may vary due to a number of factors, including the effects of preferred orientation and/or particle size. Preferred orientation effects can be minimized by methods well known in the art, including light grinding of the sample. Where the effects of preferred orientation and/or particle size are present, peak intensities may be altered, but the characteristic peak positions of the polymorph are unchanged. See, e.g., The United States Pharmacopeia #24, National Formulary #19, pages 1843-1844,2000. Furthermore, it is also well known in the crystallography art that for any given crystal form, the angular peak positions may vary slightly. For example, peak positions can shift due to sample displacement or a variation in the temperature at which a sample is analyzed. Provided sample displacement errors are minimized, and the analysis is conducted at room temperature, a peak position variability of + 0.1° in 2q (the angular precision of a typical laboratory diffractometer) will not hinder the identification of the crystalline forms of the present invention.
The angular peak positions in 20 and corresponding relative intensity data (I/Io) for all peaks with intensities equal to or greater than 5% of the largest peak for {2-[l-(3,5-bistrifluoromethylbenzyl)-5-pyridin-4-yl-lH-[l,2,3]triazol-4-yl]-pyridin-3-yl}-(2-chlorophenyl)-methanone are listed in the tables below.
Accordingly, using the methodology described above with CuKa radiation, X-ray powder diffraction patterns were generated for Form I, the crystalline form resulting from the process described in United States Application No. 60/376,121 (WO03/091226), Example 132. The crystal form is characterized by the angular peak positions in 2q and corresponding relative intensity data in Table I, which lists the 20 values (+ 0.1° in 2q) and relative intensities equal to or greater than 5% of the largest peak for Form I {2-[l-

Useful solvents for the reaction include DMSO, isopropanol, ethanol, THF, and toluene. Preferably, the reaction is carried out in DMSO or isopropanol. The reaction temperature is not critical, but may preferably vary from approximately 40 °C to approximately 80 °C.
The product of the reaction can be isolated and purified by techniques well known in the art, such as precipitation, filtration, extraction, evaporation, trituration, chromatography, or recrystallization.
In preparing the crystalline forms of the present invention, the use of an anti-solvent may be advantageous. As used in the context of the present process, the term "anti-solvent" refers to a solvent in which {2-[l-(3,5-bistrifluoromethylbenzyl)-5-pyridin-4-yl-lH-[l,2,3]triazol-4-yl]-pyridin-3-yl}-(2-chlorophenyl)-methanone is significantly less soluble relative to the selected solvent. Preferably, when an anti-solvent is used, it is miscible with the selected solvent.
Thus, {2-[l-(3,5-bistrifluoromethylbenzyl)-5-pyridin-4-yl-lH-[l,2,3]triazol-4-yl]-pyridin-3-yl}-(2-chlorophenyl)-methanone (Form IV and Form V) may be prepared by

crystallization from a solvent under controlled conditions. Crystallization from solution and/or by solution-mediated phase transformations (slurrying techniques) is contemplated to be within the scope of the present process.
In practice, a number of solvents and anti-solvents have been found to be useful in the preparation of Form IV. These solvents include lower alcohols, ethers, esters, nitriles, and halocarbons. For example, Form IV of the present invention can be prepared by crystallization from a solvent selected from the group consisting of isopropanol, acetone, acetonitrile, propanol, butanol, ethyl acetate, methyl tertiary butyl ether, and dichloromethane. A preferred solvent from which Form IV may be crystallized is isopropanol. Anti-solvents such as hexanes, heptane, or water may also be useful for the crystallization of Form IV.
Form IV may be prepared over a range of temperatures. In practice, Form IV may be prepared at temperatures ranging from room temperature to about 85 °C.
Form V of the present invention may also be prepared by crystallization from a solvent. For example, Form V may be crystallized from an aqueous organic solvent mixture. In practice, the organic solvent useful for crystallization of Form V is a lower alcohol, such as methanol or ethanol, and the anti-solvent is water.
Crystallization of Form V may also be carried out at temperatures ranging from room temperature to approximately 76 °C; more preferably from 68-71 °C.
One of ordinary skill in the art will recognize that an alternate name for the crystalline compounds of Form IV and Form V is: Methanone, [2-[l-[[3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]methyl]-5-(4-pyridinyl)-lH-l,2,3-triazol-4-yl]-3-pyridinyl](2-chlorophenyl)-.

Disorders of the central nervous system, including depressive and anxiety disorders, have been characterized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV™) (1994, American Psychiatric Association, Washington, D.C.). The DSM-IV™ provides clear descriptions of diagnostic categories. The skilled artisan will recognize that there are alternative nomenclatures, nosologies, and classification systems for these disorders, and that these systems may evolve with medical scientific progress. For instance, the ICHPPC-2 (International Classification of Health Problems in Primary Care) (3rd edition, 1983, Oxford University Press, Oxford) provides an

X-16289(PCT)
34
alternative classification system. Thus, the terms "depression," "depressive disorders," "anxiety," and "anxiety disorders" are intended to include like disorders that are described in other diagnostic sources.
According to the fourth edition of the DSM-IV™, major depressive disorders are characterized by one or more major depressive episodes, which consist of a period of at least two weeks of depressed mood or loss of pleasure, in addition to other symptoms. Thus, the skilled artisan will recognize that the present invention is useful for the treatment of either a single episode or recurrent episodes of major depressive disorder.
The skilled artisan will appreciate that other depressive disorders may also be treated by administering an effective amount of a compound of the present invention. Such other depressive disorders include dysthymic disorder, and depressive disorders not otherwise specified (for example, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, minor depressive disorder, recurrent brief depressive disorder, or postpsychotic depressive disorder of schizophrenia). In addition, the treatment of depression by the compounds of the present invention may also include the treatment of mood disorders due to a general medical condition and substance-induced mood disorders.
The DSM-IV™ also provides a diagnostic tool for anxiety and related disorders. These disorders include: panic disorder with or without agoraphobia, agoraphobia without history of panic disorder, specific phobia, social phobia or social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, acute stress disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, anxiety disorder due to a general medical condition, substance-induced anxiety disorder and anxiety disorder not otherwise specified. As used herein, the term "anxiety" includes treatment of those anxiety disorders and related disorders described in the DSM-IV.
