Abstract: Absolute asymmetric synthesis is the synthesis of optically active products from achiral or racemic precursors only. This has generally been regarded as impossible and is relevant in the discussion of the origins of biomolecular homochirality. A possible route to absolute asymmetric synthesis involves total spontaneous resolution, which is possible for stereochemically labile substances which crystallise as conglomerates (i.e. the enantiomers crystallise in separate crystals). Using total spont... more
