Chiral Technologies Introduces CHIRALPAK® IG – The Newest Addition to Daicel’s Immobilised Meta Chiral Selectors

Posted May 9, 2016

WEST CHESTER, Pa. (May 9, 2016) — Chiral Technologies announces the availability of a new immobilised chiral stationary phase (CSP), CHIRALPAK® IG, a meta-substituted phenyl carbamate of amylose. This new selector joins CHIRALPAK IA, CHIRALPAK IB, and CHIRALPAK IC (also Meta selectors) to form the most effective family of four columns for use as a primary screening set.

Our data shows that the combination of CHIRALPAK IG, CHIRALPAK IA, IB, and IC yields the highest success rate of any four immobilised chiral chromatography columns. When used with CHIRALPAK ID, IE, and IF as a complementary set for secondary screening, chromatographers will find excellent chiral separations provided by the robust immobilised columns to ensure the highest success with the longest column lifetime.

The Meta immobilised columns offer mechanistic advantages in chiral recognition, higher success rates using fewer columns, and are known for their robustness and extended column life.

“We are proud to offer this new column to customers as a way to simplify their chiral method development work, and increase their success rate” said Joe Barendt, Ph.D., President of Chiral Technologies, Inc.

Chiral Technologies Europe will showcase CHIRALPAK IG at Analytica 2016 – Hall A1 –  Stand 225.
