The separation of enantiomers has been started in the past and continues to be a topic of great interest in various fields of research, mainly because these compounds could be involved in biological processes such as, for example, those related to human health. Great attention has been devoted to studies for the analysis of enantiomers present in food products in order to assess authenticity and safety. The separation of these compounds can be carried out utilizing analytical techniques such as gas chromatography, high-performance liquid chromatography, supercritical fluid chromatography, and other methods. The separation is performed mainly employing chromatographic columns containing particles modified with chiral selectors (CS). Among the CS used, modified polysaccharides, glycopeptide antibiotics, and cyclodextrins are currently applied.

Abstract This paper presents a novel multi-residue method for the enantioselective analysis of 22 chiral pesticides in cucumber, tomato, cabbage, grape, mulberry, apple and pear at enantiomeric levels. Pesticides were efficiently extracted by magnetic solid-phase extraction based on graphene as sorbent. Response surface methodology was used to assist the multivariable optimization. The perfect chiral separation of the enantiomers was achieved on a Chiralpak IG column within 47 min by reversed-ph...

Alpha-cypermethrin (α-cypermethrin), an important chiral pyrethroid insecticide, is frequently detected in human samples. Because of the possible human health risks caused by α-cypermethrin, we studied dynamics, residues, and metabolism of α-cypermethrin in five common vegetables (tomato, cucumber, rape, cabbage, and pepper) on enantiomeric levels after foliar spray. α-Cypermethrin was qualified by a HP-5 column and its enantiomers could be separated by gas chromatograph (GC) using a BGB-172 chi...

An efficient procedure, solid-phase extraction (SPE) coupled with dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME), was used for the extraction, purification, and preconcentration of target analytes. In order to obtain high extract...

A novel chiral porous-layer stationary phase was developed for use in open-tubular nano liquid chromatography. The stationary phase was prepared by an in-situ polymerization of 3-chloro-2-hydroxypropylmethacrylate (HPMA-Cl) and ethylene dimethacrylate (EDMA). The reactive chloro groups at the surface of the porous stationary phase were reacted with β-Cyclodextrin (β-CD). The resulting morphology was characterized by using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Fourier-transform infrared spectros...

Abstract The first separation of enantiomers in capillary electrophoresis (CE) counts slightly longer than three decades. Fast development of the practice and theory of chiral CE occurred in the past 30 years and today one can consider this technology to have a solid and mature theoretical background. The goal of the present review is not only to summarize the history and contemporary theory of enantioseparations by using CE but also to present the authors personal view where shall we head to wi...

Abstract As the understanding of the various biological actions of compounds with different stereochemistry has grown, the necessity to develop methods for the analytical qualification and quantification of chiral products has become particularly important. The last quarter of the century has seen a vast growth of diverse chiral technologies, including stereocontrolled synthesis and enantioselective separation and analysis concepts. By the introduction of covalently bonded silica-based chiral st...

Abstract Herein, we developed a rapid supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) method for chiral separation and enantioselective determination of prothioconazole in soil and tomatoes. The potential effects of chiral stationary phases, co-solvents, column temperature, and back pressure on enantioseparation of prothioconazole have been studied in detail. Two prothioconazole enantiomers were best separated on cellulose tris(3, 5-dimethylphenylcarbamate)-coated chiral stationary phase with CO 2 -2-p...

Abstract In this study our preliminary attempt for obtaining fast and highly efficient separations of enantiomers in high-performance liquid chromatography with slightly modified state-of-the-art commercial instrumentation is described. In order to reach this goal after careful selection of chiral analytes, the preparation of chiral stationary phase (CSP), mobile phase composition and column dimensions were optimized. The concept of segmented chiral-achiral column was introduced. As the result o...

Abstract Recent advancements in particle design are common in reversed-phase liquid chromatography (RPLC), but in chiral separations their use is still sporadic in commercially available chiral stationary phases (CSPs). Due to reported lower mass transfer resistance, they might be a promising opportunity to increase efficiency and reduce time of analysis since the relatively higher mass transfer resistance term of CSPs caused by slow adsorption-desorption kinetics is the most performance-limitin...

The detection of enantiopurity for small sample quantities is crucial, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry; however, existing methodologies rely on specific chiral recognition elements, or complex optical systems, limiting its utility. A nanoscale chirality sensor, for continuously monitoring molecular chirality using an electric circuit readout, is presented. This device design represents an alternative real-time scalable approach for chiral recognition of small quantity samples (less t...

Polysaccharides, oligosaccharides, and their derivatives, particularly of amylose, cellulose, chitosan, and β-cyclodextrin, are well-known chiral selectors (CSs) of chiral stationary phases (CSPs) in chromatography, because they can separate a wide range of enantiomers. Typically, such CSPs are prepared by physically coating, or chemically immobilizing the polysaccharide and β-cyclodextrin derivatives onto inert silica gel carriers as chromatographic support. Over the past few years, new chiral ...

Abstract null null Reliable separation of peptides, amino acids and proteins as accurate as possible with the maximum conformation and biological activity is crucial and essential for drug discovery. Polysaccharide, as one of the most abundant natural biopolymers with optical activity on earth, is easy to be functionalized due to lots of hydroxyl groups on glucose units. Over the last few decades, polysaccharide derivatives are gradually employed as effective separation media. The highly-ordered...

Capillary electromigration (CE) and liquid chromatographic techniques (CLC/nano-LC) are miniaturized techniques offering distinct advantages over conventional ones in the field of separation science. Among these, high efficiency, high chromatographic resolution, and use of minute volumes of both mobile phase and sample volumes are the most important. CE and CLC/nano-LC have been applied to the analysis of many compounds including peptides, proteins, drugs, enantiomers, ions, etc. Over the years,...

Cyclodextrins and their derivatives have been used for chiral HPLC selectors, while they are costly to use as mobile phase additives in HPLC. Here, we report application of phenyl column coated permanently with methylated β-cyclodextrin for chiral HPLC. A 0.1% (v/v) phosphoric acid solution containing 1 M NaCl and 0.5% (w/v) methylated β-cyclodextrin was subjected to a phenyl column at a flow rate of 0.5 mL/min at 30 °C for 2 h. Using the precoating phenyl column, all the enantiomers of the four...

Enantioresolution processes are vital tools for investigating the enantioselectivities of chiral compounds. An analyst resolves to optimize enantioresolution conditions once they are determined. Generally, optimization is conducted by a one-factor-at-a-time (OFAT) approach. Although this approach may determine an adequate condition for the method, it does not often allow the estimation of the real optimum condition. Experimental designs are conducive for the optimization of enantioresolution met...

Direct enantioseparation of mandelic acid by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with a reversed phase column and a mobile phase containing a small amount of hydroxylpropyl-beta-cyclodextrin (HP-beta-CD) was studied as an efficient method for saving consumption of the CD additive. As a result, it was proposed that racemic mandelic acid can be analyzed with a phenyl column by using a mobile phase composed of 10 mM ammonium acetate buffer (pH 4.2) and 0.02% (w/v) HP-beta-CD at a flow rat...
