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: 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.

    ABSTRACT: The indole ring is present in many pharmaceutically active compounds, as in MaxiPost™ (or BMS-204352), an active pharmaceutical ingredient for post-stroke neuroprotection. Two different fluoro-oxindole-type chiral solutes derived from MaxiPost were prepared. The structural modification was placed on the NH indole function, which is probably taking part in the bioactivity, but also probably in the chromatographic enantiomer separation. Baseline resolution of the enantiomers of MaxiPost and the two derivatives was achieved on two commercial chlorinated polysaccharide stationary phases: cellulose tris-(3-chloro-4-methylphenylcarbamate) and amylose tris-(5-chloro-2-methylphenylcarbamate) (Lux Cellulose-2 and Lux-Amylose-2 from Phenomenex) in supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC). The effects of molecular structure on SFC retention and enantioresolution are studied. The effect of temperature, modifier nature (methanol or ethanol) and proportion were investigated in order to select the best conditions for preparative purposes. A temperature study led to Van't Hoff plots that were strongly dependent on the mobile phase composition. From linear portions of the plots for separation, thermodynamic parameters of the separation could be calculated. Incidentally, particular adsorption-desorption effects were observed. Semi-preparative resolution was then achieved, allowing retrieving about 10mg purified enantiomers for bioactivity testing.

    ABSTRACT: The immobilized polysaccharide-derived chiral stationary phases (CSPs) combine the benefits of broad application scope and high preparative potential with CSP robustness and universal solvent compatibility. Strategies for efficient and straightforward method development with these CSPs were previously overviewed. In the current study, six CSPs with different structural features in the immobilized series were examined for their complementary properties in separation of enantiomers. Some method development aspects related to polysaccharide-derived CSPs in general and certain specific features observed on these immobilized supports, such as the effects of mobile phase, sample solvent and mobile phase additive on chiral separation, are also discussed.
