The reason why the beetle produces an enantiomeric mixture was unclear at the time of its discovery.
Their synthesis, which appeared in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (2003, 125, 9308), employs a tandem Diels-Alder/allylboration strategy which installs both stereocentres and the heterocyclic ring rapidly and with high levels of enantiomeric control.

For example, bacteria act as enzyme reactors to crank out huge quantities of one enantiomeric form of vitamin C, and enzymes isolated from other microbes help produce the desired enantiomer of aspartame, an artificial sweetener.
For example, the quantitative determination of aromatic hydrocarbons in diesel fuels, the analysis of multicomponent mixtures containing sulfonylurea and carbamate pesticides, and the rapid separation of enantiomeric pharmaceutical isomers (box) have all been successfully achieved with this clever analytical tool.
