  • Scheme


    S-(+)-PZQamine:
    m.p. 117-118°C (lit.[1] 117-119°).
    [α]D20 = 296° (c=1, DCM) ([α]D20 for R-(-)-PZQamine: -306° (c=?, solvent=?) [2])


    Determination of the optical rotation α in dependence of the ee (in %)

    To a solution of S-(+)-PZQamine (c = 1, DCM) was added a solution of rac-PZQamine (c = 1, DCM) (vol/vol) to give a total volume of 1 mL.

    Small deviations due to the volatile solvent DCM.


    Result:
    Linear dependence of the optical rotation α of S-(+)-PZQamine on the ee (determined for a concentration c = 1 in DCM)
