Chiral recognition in the gas phase.


Chiral recognition in the gas phase.

Ed. by Anne Zehnacker.

CRC Press


225 pages




Chemists, and especially biochemists, explain procedures for distinguishing and separating right-handed and left-handed versions of the same species of molecule when they are in gas phase. The two enantiomers often display different characteristics, so there is considerable financial benefit to separating them cheaply. Among the topics are valence photoelectronic circular dichroism of gas phase enantiomers, the infrared and Raman detection of transient chirality recognition in the gas phase with ethanol as a case study, enantioselectivity in gas-phase ion-molecule reactions, equilibrium methods, deoxy oligonucliotides as chiral references for discriminating enantiomeric amino acids under mass spectrometry, solution-phase versus gas-phase chiral recognition by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry with a case study of two chiral selector classes.
