Cyclodextrin derivatives in GC separation of racemic mixtures of volatiles: Part III


  • Second International Symposium on Chiral Discrimination, May 27—31, 1991, Rome, Italy.


The gas chromatographic performance of differently derivatized α-, β-, and γ-cyclodextrins in the separation of racemic mixtures of volatiles is investigated. The performances of 2,3,6-permethylated α-, β-, and γ;-cyclodextrins and 2,6-dimethyl-3-trifluoro-acetyl α-, β-, and γ-cyclodextrins mixed with different ratios of OV-1701 or OV-1701-OH terminated were tested with racemates with widely differing structures. The influence of the percentage of cyclodextrins in polysiloxane, of film thickness of the stationary phase, of the length of the column, of column conditioning, and of the operating temperatures in the separations of different racemates has been evaluated.
