Colour indicator for enantiomeric excess and assignment of the configuration of the major enantiomer of an amino acid ester

Author affiliations

Abstract

A colour indicator for the full range of enantiomeric excess (−100% → 100% ee) is presented which is based on visual colour inspection of a liquid crystal doped with the analyte, i.e. the methyl ester of amino acid phenylglycine, providing the enantiomeric excess and allowing the assignment of the major enantiomer.
