Physically Coated Cellulose and Amylose Derivatives

This type of chiral stationary phase, developed by Okamoto and commercialized by Daicel Chemical Industries, can be considered to be the most universally applicable type of chiral stationary phase for both analytical and preparative chromatographic applications. Many different column types are available on the market. However, experience suggests that, with four different types of phases, a wide range of racemates, belonging to a broad variety of product classes, can be separated. The most interesting phases in our view are:

1. Cellulose derivatives:

(a) Chiralcel OD (3,5 dimethylphenyl carbamate derivative)

(b) Chiralcel OJ (p^ra-methylbenzoyl derivative)

2. Amylose derivatives:

(a) Chiralpak AD (3,5 dimethylphenyl carbamate derivative)

(b) Chiralpak AS [(S)-a-methylbenzyl carbamate derivative)]

The analytical phases are coated on a 10 |im wide pore silica. However, some types of phases are also available on a 5 |im silica matrix. Furthermore, two phases, which are specifically designed for rever-sed-phase applications, have been brought on to the market. An overview of the different types of commercially available coated phases is given in Table 1.

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
