Chiral Autoamplification Meets Dynamic Chirality Control to Suggest Nonautocatalytic Chemical Model of Prebiotic Chirality Amplification
Enantiomeric excess (ee) vs. conversion plots for the kinetic resolution of scalemic (S)-1-phenylethanol in the presence of catalysts 1 (a, c) and 2 (b). Enantiomeric ratio (er) [S]/[R] vs. conversion plots for the kinetic resolution of scalemic 1-phenylethanol in the presence of achiral catalysts 1 (d, f) and 2 (e). Dots represent experimental data; solid lines are theoretical curves with parameters and given in Table 1. Curve numbers correspond to the numbers of entries in Table 1.
