Simulations Enable “Choose-Your-Own-Adventure” Stereochemistry

University of Utah

“We used our data-driven tools to derive significant insight into how the process works that allows us to design the correct additives to get the desired outcomes,” Sigman said. The results allow chemists to control which stereochemical product comes out of the reaction, simply by selecting the right ligand. It’s more than just a laboratory convenience, though. The study also reveals much more about how this important chemical process works.
