Synthesis, structure, and characterization of polymeric stationary phase derived from (R,R)-tartramide and bisphenol-S



The preparation of a new chiral polymeric stationary phase for chromatography is presented. A porous copolymer of mono- and dimethacrylate derivatives of bisphenol-S and divinylbenzene containing hydroxyl functional groups was used as a matrix. (3-Aminopropyl)triethoxysilane was used as a coupling agent and was bonded to these groups. The obtained compound was transferred into a final product during a three-step synthesis. The properties of the obtained polymeric phase with the chiral moiety were studied. © 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 82: 3409–3417, 2001
