Another expression may be used (Rakels, Straathof and Heijnen, 1993): The advantage of this latter way to calculate E is that it does not involve c which may be difficult to measure accurately. As opposed to ee p and ee s which are relative quantities measured for inst in the same chromatogram, c is an absolute quantity. The most accurate way, however, is to use a computer program to fit many measured data points at several conversions to calculated curves for different E-values. The E-value is related to the difference in free energy of activation for reaction with the two enantiomers by G ‡ =−RT lnE.

The ratio of the pharmacological activity of these are called the eudismic ratio (ER) and Pfeiffer’s rule states that “the lower the effective dose of a drug the greater the difference in the pharmacological effect of the optical isomers”. When two enantiometic Reactions catalysed by enzymes 21 drugs have different pharmacological effect it may be that the distomer has no effect at all and just represents a ballast. 1) are examples of this. In this case the (S)-enantiomer is 130 times as active as the (R)-form.

If it is necessary to raise the E-value either of these four factors may be changed (Chen and Sih, 1989; Faber, Ottolina and Riva, 1993). , 1996). In either case a simple screening procedure is necessary. Recently a spectrophotometric method has been developed (Janes and Kazlauskas, 1997). The more typical organic chemical ways of solving the problem would be to change the substrate slightly, introduce for instance easily removable protecting groups, or more easily to manipulate the medium. 9) (Anthonsen and Hoff, 1998).
