An enantiomeric pair of compounds has the same connectivity of atoms which differ only in the relative spatial arrangement of those atoms about the asymmetric carbon.
Both the compounds were characterized [5] for their identity and purity, their enantiomeric purity was monitored by specific rotation using polarimeter and were purified till equal opposite values for specific rotation were obtained.

While the native enzyme gives a two percent enantiomeric excess in favour of the (S)-isomer, one of their mutated enzymes provided a 93 percent enantiomeric excess in favour of the same enantiomer.
Despite the demonstrated importance of chiral drugs, the detailed physics underlying the biomolecular interactions responsible for their enantiomeric selectivity often remain obscure.
Depending on the details of the reaction to be enhanced, a chemist can design the catalyst to speed up many kinds of chemical processes, creating the desired enantiomeric form.
The title will cover new material including the use of enzymes for the synthesis and resolution of enantiomeric compounds as well, as their use in drug discovery; how stereochemistry impacts on decisions taken during the ADMET (absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, toxicity) stage of drug discovery; issues faced during the final stages of the drug development process; the impact of ICH (International Conference on Harmonisation) on the use of single isomer drugs; racemic switches; and legal perspectives looking at IP and patent issues surrounding chiral switches and marketing single enantiomer switches.
