Application of a modified Mosher's method for the determination of enantiomeric ratio and absolute configuration at C-3 of chiral 1,3-dihydroxy ketones.
1828 - 1831.
The enantiomeric ratio and absolute configuration of products of the transketolase reaction are typically determined by comparison of the specific rotation or derivatisation and HPLC or GC. A Mosher's ester method has been developed via ester formation at the primary alcohol C-1 which can be used to determine the stereoselectivity of the reaction, as well as the absolute configuration of the product at C-3.
