The enantioselectivity of a chiral catalyst can be determined from its racemic form by mass spectrometric screening of a nonequal mixture of two mass-labeled quasienantiomeric substrates. The presented method opens up new possibilities for evaluating catalyst structures that are not readily available in enantiomerically pure form.
The shift of paradigm in combinatorial chemistry, from large compound libraries (of mixtures) on a small scale towards defined compound libraries where each compound is prepared in an individual well, has stimulated the search for alternative separation approaches. The key to a rapid and efficient synthesis is not only the parallel arrangement of reactions,(More)
The use of quasi-enantiomeric substrates and ESI-MS as an analytical tool has made it possible to determine the intrinsic enantioselectivity of chiral catalysts by monitoring catalytic intermediates. In this way, potential problems of methods based on product analysis, which may be caused by catalytically active impurities, partial dissociation of a chiral(More)
X-ray absorption near the iron K edge (XANES) was used to investigate the characteristics of temperature-induced low-spin-to-high-spin change (SC) in metallo-supramolecular polyelectrolyte amphiphile complexes (PAC) containing FeN(6) octahedra attached to two or six amphiphilic molecules. Compared to the typical spin-crossover material Fe(phen)(2) (NCS)(2)(More)
