Automatic chemical reaction prediction: now in stereo

The automated reaction pathway search method predicts the correct stereochemistry of pericyclic reactions using only the target molecular structure. The AFIR method traces the reaction of a 52-atom natural product, endiandric acid C methyl ester, to the starting materials using only quantum chemical calculations. (Tsuyoshi Mita et al. JACS. 30 November 2022) Researchers at the …
