RACEMIC RESOLUTION AGENTS, CHIRAL LIGANDS AND CATALYSTS

Cinchona alkaloids are recognized as a privileged class of compounds being widely used as chiral ligands/phase transfer catalysts in asymmetric synthesis and in racemic resolution processes. One of the most interesting features of this well-known family of alkaloids is their availability in two pseudo-enantiomeric forms. Cinchona catalysts can therefore provide access to both enantiomers of a required product. In order to satisfy customer needs in the manufacturing of chiral molecules, Buchler offers an extensive portfolio of pure chiral compounds.
