Transcript

  • 1. Prepared by Lawrence Kok http://lawrencekok.blogspot.com
  • 2. Stereoisomerism and Optical Isomerism  Stereoisomerism are isomer with same Molecular Formula + Structural Formula but different in spatial arrangement ( different 3 Dimensional shapes ) Optical Isomers (Organic)
    • Chiral, asymmetrical carbon
    • 4 different gps attached to carbon central
    • Non superimposable
    • Mirror image ( right, left handed )
    • Enantiomers
    • Identical chemical/physical properties 
    • 2 enantiomers rotate plane of polarised light to diff directions
  • 3. Optical isomers (Thalidomide) tragedy due to Mirror Image
    • Thalidomide exist as optical isomers 
    • Enantiomers (R) and (S)
    • (R) effective against  insomnia
    • and  morning sickness
    • S teratogenic, birth and limb defect
    In nature, our body synthesises enzyme which have active site for only one enantiomer
    • Drug company, synthesise drug with R and S ( racemic mix)
    • (R) is effective but (S) has side effect
    • Enzyme recognises only one enantiomer due to active site
  • 4. Mirror image of thalidomide caused limb deformation
    • (S) enantiomer causes limb defects and severe shortening of the arms /legs.
    • (R) enantiomer is effective drug
    • Body will convert (R) to (S) by racemisation process, producing a racemic mixture (R)/(S)

  • 5.
    • (S) enantiomer, effective as reducing fever and pain relief
    • (R) enantiomer has no side effect!
    • Most drugs in racemic mixture equal (R) and (S)
    • Cheaper to synthesise racemic mix than pure enantiomer
    • Single enantiomer appears to be more effective than racemic mix
    • Clinical trial is essential to ensure no harmful side effect
    Mirror Image of Ibuprofen (pain killer drug) has no side effect source http://www.chemconnections.org/organic/chem226/Labs/opt-rotation/ibupro-resolution-09.html
  • 6. IB Keywords Enantiomers - pair of non superimposable isomers + mirror image + diff 3D Isomers - compounds with same MF + SF but diff spatial arrangement Racemic - equal (50/50)% mixture of both enantiomers S and R (  optically inactive  ), no net rotation of plane- polarized  light, rotations cancel out. History of Thalidomide 1954 -   Thalidomide for   insomnia  and  morning sickness . 1961 -   Withdrawn,  teratogenicity , birth defects result if  drug is taken during pregnancy. 1990 - FDA approved for erythema nodosum leprosum,   leprosy  (skin disease)  1998 -  FDA approved for  multiple myeloma , (cancer of plasma cells in the blood)  Sources and pictures from FDA/other contributors http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/druginfo/lenalid omide http://bloodjournal.hematologylibrary.org/content/108/10/3233/F1.expansion.html http://animalculescience.blogspot.com/
  • 7. Video, Thalidomide, Enantiomers/Mirror Image/Chiral Carbon Thalidomide making a come back after named as the greatest disaster in medical history Click  HERE  to view the Return of Thalidomide/ Lenalidomide Why even though it is so deadly to pregnant women?
    • 2004 - Lenalidomide derived from Thalido able to strengthen immune cells and effective against blood cancers
    • 2011 - Thalidomide + Lenalidomide inhibit formation of new blood vessels (  anti-angiogenic ) of tumor cells, Tumors unable to grow/spread due to lack of nutrition. Researchers testing thalidomide in trials for other HIV and  Crohn’s disease .
  • 8. March 2010 - Published in Science by Takumi Ito. Click  HERE  for info/source
    • Defect Limb due to Thalidomide
    • (S) enantiomers binds /inactivates the protein  cereblon , which is important in limb formation. Inactivation, leads to a  teratogenic  effect on LIMB DEFORMITIES
    • Published in Science .....
    • Hiroshi Handa /Takumi Ito - Developed tiny beads with Thalidomide attached.
    • Thalidomide beads mix with cells extract
    • Protein Cereblon was bounded on beads
    • ack of Protein Cereblon during embryo development, causes limb deformities

    • Optical Isomers have
    • Same MF, SF but differ in spatial arrangement.
    • Same physical/chemical properties
    • Differentiated using polarimeter, optically active enantiomers, rotate plane of polarised light in diff direction
    Polarimeter picture from http://www.creation-science-prophecy.com/amino/
  • 10.
    • IB Keywords
    • Optically active enantiomers rotate plane of polarised light (clock/anticlockwise)
    • Enantiomers have same physical/chemical properties
    • Enantiomers present in equal amt (racemic mix), one enantiomer will rotate light to one dir, another will rotate to same degree but opposite dir (rotation cancel out each other), OPTICALLY INACTIVE
    • Natural products (body) produce only one pure enantiomer (optically active)
    • Synthetic products produce 2 enantiomers, (racemic mix), (optically inactive)
    • Video, Polarimeter in distinguishing optically active enantiomers
