Predicting enantioselectivity: Computation as an efficient "experimental" tool for probing enantioselectivity

Ragusa, A., Hayes, J.M., Light, M.E. and Kilburn, J.D. (2006) Predicting enantioselectivity: Computation as an efficient "experimental" tool for probing enantioselectivity European Journal of Organic Chemistry, (16), pp. 3545-3549. (doi:10.1002/ejoc.200600368).

Record type: Article


As a result of the accurate agreement between computation and experiment obtained using default forcefield parameters, the MMFFs forcefield together with a Monte Carlo conformational search method (MCMM/LMCS) and the MINTA free-energy calculation algorithm has been used to probe the enantioselective potential of a new macrocyclic receptor, hence saving time and money on costly experimental procedures.
