View Resource Thalidomide Case Study

This is a case study adapted from "Teaching Chemistry Through the Jigsaw Strategy" by the Quality Education Fund, Hong Kong (2007). It brings to attention the importance of chirality and the structures of molecules in a biological context. It describes the real events surrounding the drug Thalidomide before it was pulled off of the market. This drug has recently been introduced back to the market...
