12:41 PM MST | December 12, 2008 | Alex Scott
Research chemists from the University of Bristol (Bristol, U.K.) and other research institutes, led by Jake L. Stymiest, say they have developed a two-step process for converting secondary alcohols into chiral tertiary alcohols. Chiral tertiary alcohols have a broad range of uses including chemical intermediates for the pharmaceutical industry. The research was featured in the November 21 edition of Nature magazine. Manufacturing certain classes of chiral molecules including secondary alcohols is easy, the researchers say. However, producing one particular class...
