Ropivacaine is an enantiomeric isomer of bupivacaine that has similar anaesthetic properties, but is potentially less cardiotoxic and neurotoxic (11-14).
The existing commercial projects have demonstrated that it is often cheaper to produce single enantiomeric drugs with chromatography rather than use traditional technologies such as crystallization and/or asymmetric synthesis.
Many attractive features of cyclodextrin, covalent or noncovalent catalysis, and enantiomeric catalysis arise from the specific interaction between cyclodextrin units and guest molecules [3].
