Photochemical Deracemization of Chiral Compounds Assists Drug Development

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
MUNICH, Germany, Dec. 20, 2018 — Deploying a photochemical method, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has achieved deracemization of chiral compounds for use in biology and medicine. The advance could make it easier for chemists and drug developers to produce active ingredients with very specific properties — antibacterial characteristics, for example — even when working with compounds that are chiral. Chiral compounds exist as enantiomers that are nonsuperimposable mirror images of each other. Although enantiomeric molecules — molecule pairs that are mirror images of each other...Read full article
