Viedma Molero, Cristóbal and Noorduin, Wim L. and Ortiz Menéndez, José Eugenio and Torres, Trinidad and Cintas Moreno, Pedro (2011) Asymmetric amplification in amino acid sublimation involving racemic compound to conglomerate conversion. Chemical communications, 47 . pp. 671-673. ISSN 1364-548X

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.
