About the discovery
Modafinil—a medical compound which was first formulated for several defence soldiers to target the process of their brain and make their more alert and active in the warfare and other crucial operations. This generic compound—Modafinil is approved by FDA and endorsed as a wakefulness-promoting agent. It was first discovered that the composition of this drug can treat narcolepsy and sleep apnea. But later, with the evolution in the R&D, a few studies discovered that, out of the two enantiomers of this composition—R-enantiomer & S-enantiomer, the former works specifically on the cognitive process of the brain whereas the later targets the central nervous system and exudes chemicals which help to keep the user awake avoid the frequent nap attacks.
Subsequent to this study, the scientists did following experiments on R-enantiomer, when led to the discovery of armodafinil (concentrated R-enantiomer). The synthesis of Armodafinil primarily targets the cognitive response of the brain and makes the user more alert and sharpen the memory.
