Hence drugs that are chiral must be administered as single enantiomers. 2 Chiral Drugs Among the 1200 drugs presently (1998) under development, approximately half are developed as single enantiomers, 32% are achiral and the remaining 17% are either racemates or no decision has been made on the issue. In years to come it is expected that these figures will be shifted even more towards enantiopure drugs. For some racemic drugs already approved there are currently being developed processes for single enantiomers.

In this case the (S)-enantiomer is 130 times as active as the (R)-form. 1). The distomer, the (R)-enantiomer is a hallucinogen and since the drug is used as racemate, hallucinations may be a postanesthesia sideeffect. 1). This drug was earlier used as a sedative and the active drug is the (R)-form. The (S)-form is teratogenic and caused many tragedies in the 60s. There are also examples of chiral drugs in which both enantiomers have independent therapeutic value or they may even have positive effects in combination.
