Recent Advances in Chiral Resolution through Membrane-Based Approaches



original image

Hollow-fiber membrane contactors, which can be combined with enzymatic resolution, have already emerged as a potential technology for enantiomeric resolution under continuous operation (see scheme; ORG denotes the organic phase). Furthermore, recently reported optically active polyelectrolyte multilayer (PEMU) membranes appear extremely promising for future applications in preparative chiral separations.
