Abstract

A straightforward unprecedented sublimation protocol that
reveals both conversion of a racemic compound into a racemic
conglomerate and subsequent enantioenrichment has been developed
for the proteinogenic amino acid valine. The phenomenon
has been observed in closed and open systems, providing insight
into asymmetric amplification mechanisms under presumably
prebiotic conditions.
