Description of key information

Additional information

Physico-chemical properties of enantiomers are essentially identical, except for those dependent on a chiral environment (e.g. rotation of plane of polarization of polarized light, i.e. optical activity). See e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enantiomer. Therefore, data for LL-lactide and DD-lactide acid are fully valid for dilactide, being a mixture of LL-, DD- and DL-lactide.
