Application


  • Chiral Resolution and Amino Acid Racemase Applications: L-Asparagine monohydrate has been utilized in the immobilization of amino acid racemases complemented with preferential crystallization process for enhanced chiral resolutions (Carneiro et al., 2020).

  • Electro-optical Property Studies: L-Asparagine monohydrate can be used to prepare growth crystals to study its electro-optical properties, particularly in noncentrosymmetric crystal environments. (Shkir et al., 2015).
