I was just curious about this for molecules for which the effects of different enantiomers has NOT been studied.

like, maybe seroquel is a mix of one active and one inactive enantiomer. The company producing seroquel has a precise way that they do the reactions, which they dont share with their generic competitors. The generic chemists come up with a set of reactions that produces the same molecule, but the racemic mixture contains different ratios of the active vs. inactive enantiomer.

maybe some people respond to one species and others respond to another.

anyways... Am I correct that it is tricky to analyse the composition of enantiomers in a racemic mixture? Maybe its a piece of cake for the professionals. I just remember that this was a notoriously tricky thing back in my days as a chemistry student...
