ABSTRACT Enantioseparation of naproxen was performed on an immobilized polysaccharide-based chiral stationary phase (CSP), Chiralpak IA, in the normal-phase mode. The effects of polar alcohol modifier in mobile phase and column temperature on retention, enantioseparation, and elution order were investigated. Two unusual phenomena were observed. One was solvent-induced reversal of elution order for the two enantiomers. Not only the type but also the content of polar alcohol modifier could induce the reversal. Another uncommon phenomenon was peak deformation under some chromatographic conditions.

    ABSTRACT: Enantioseparations were achieved for eleven 3,5-disubstituted hydantoins in HPLC under the normal phase mode using Chiralpak IA. The effects of polar alcoholic modifier and column temperature on retention and enantioseparation were determined. Importantly, we found two kinds of enantiomer elution order (EEO) reversals, which include solvent-induced EEO reversal for compound 9 and temperature-induced EEO reversals for compound 3 and compound 6. The phenomena of these EEO reversals were described for the first time in present work, which is helpful to elucidate the chiral separation mechanism of these hydantoins.

    ABSTRACT: The separation of enantiomers of ten chiral arylpropionic acid derivatives was studied on six different polysaccharide-based chiral HPLC columns with various normal-phase eluents. Along with the successful separation of analyte enantiomers, the emphasis of this study was on the effect of the chiral selector and mobile phase composition as well as of the separation temperature on the elution order of enantiomers. The interesting phenomena of reversal of enantiomer elution order function of the polysaccharide backbone (cellulose or amylose), type of derivative (carbamate or benzoate), nature and position of the substituent(s) in the phenylcarbamate moiety, the polar modifier of the mobile phase (ethanol or 2-propanol), its content in the mobile phase, and separation temperature were investigated. In addition, an unusual increase in retention with increasing temperature was observed for some arylpropionic acid derivatives.

    ABSTRACT: Chiral recognition phenomena play an important role in nature as well as analytical separation sciences. In chromatography and capillary electrophoresis, enantiospecific interactions between a chiral selector and the enantiomers of an analyte resulting in transient diastereomeric complexes are required in order to achieve enantioseparations. The formation of the complexes is driven by ionic interactions, ion–dipole or dipole–dipole interactions, H-bonds, van der Waals interactions and π–π interactions. Due to the structural variety of chiral selectors applied in separation sciences, different mechanisms and structural features contribute to the chiral recognition processes. Besides structure–separation relationship studies in HPLC and CE spectroscopic techniques including NMR spectroscopy, circular dichroism and vibrational circular dichroism spectroscopy as well as molecular modeling methods have significantly contributed to the understanding of the enantiospecific recognition of enantiomers by chiral selectors. The present review briefly illustrates the current models of the enantiospecific recognition on a structural basis of various chiral selectors including polysaccharide derivatives, cyclodextrins, cyclofructan derivatives, macrocyclic glycopeptides, proteins, Pirkle-type selectors, ion exchangers, polymers, crown ethers, ligand exchangers, calixarenes, aptamers, micelles forming agents and ionic liquids.
