As a result of systematic studies on the optical resolution of racemates via crystallization, we have found that in many cases, common characteristic hydrogen-bond networks were formed in the less-soluble diastereomeric salts or conglomerates. Design of resolving/derivatizing agents could be achieved on the basis of the concept of crystal engineering, by which molecules were designed to achieve stable hydrogen-bond networks with target racemates.
