Chiral purity limitation: discovery of a partial solid solution

Abstract : Since S-Ibuprofen (S-Ibu) has been proved to have a higher therapeutic effect than R-Ibuprofen (R-Ibu) [1], the chiral separation of racemic Ibuprofen (rac-Ibu) -the current marketed drug- has become of great interest. In this work, chiral resolution of rac-Ibu was performed by using S-α-MethylBenzylAmine (S-αMBA) in order to form the diastereomeric salt S-Ibu-S-αMBA. The chiral purity obtained from various experiments seemed limited to a maximum of 87% of S-Ibu-S-αMBA. XRPD analysis suggested the existence of a partial solid solution, but the phase diagram published in literature [2] only exhibits a simple eutectic. Investigations performed through DSC measurements allowed the construction of Tammann graph and evidenced the existence of a partial solid solution enriched in S-Ibu-S-αMBA. This partial solid solution is the cause of the limitation in chiral purity. The updated phase diagram has been recently published [3]. [1] A. M. Evans, Clinical Rheumatology, 2001, vol. 20, p. 9-14.
