Stereochemistry has occupied a great role in the manufacture and development
of pharmaceuticals. Chiral properties play an important role in the determination
of pharmacological actions of the drug. In recent years, there is a considerable
interest in chiral separation to isolate and examine both enantiomers. This article
provides an overview about the stereochemistry and its role in drugs, and also, offers
approved isolation methods for enantiomeric pairs.
Keywords: Chirality, stereoisomer, enantiomer, pharmacology, chiral separation, chiral drug.
