General description

L-(+)-tartaric acid is an organic compound that is commonly used as a chiral auxiliary in reactions that involve the addition of a chiral nucleophile. It is also used as a resolving agent for the separation of enantiomers from a racemic mixture. Additionally, L-(+)-tartaric acid can also be used as a building block for the synthesis of other chiral compounds.

application

L- (+)-Tartaric acid can be used as:

  • A co-former for the synthesis of etravirine co-crystals.
  • A mobile phase additive in thin-layer chromatography.
