Abstract

The inexorable evolution of solid-phase single chirality is demonstrated for the first time for a proteinogenic amino acid. Enantioenrichment is observed both under attrition-enhanced conditions and without the aid of particle grinding. Differences in the form of the conversion profiles for the process under the two sets of conditions provide suggestions concerning the mechanism of the transformation.
