Chiral Separations by Capillary Electrophoresis

Covers the Fundamentals of Chiral Separation, Available Chiral Selectors, and Numerous Applications of Chiral Separation by Capillary Electrophoresis Since the 1980s, modern analytical tools have enabled capillary electrophoresis to become a standard part of the chemist's toolkit. With contributions from international experts, Chiral Separations by Capillary Electrophoresis provides a general overview of the principles of chiral separation by capillary electrophoresis and the different chiral selectors available. The book discusses the most important as well as several new chiral selectors used in capillary electrophoresis. It reviews recent pharmaceutical and biomedical applications and explores novel techniques, such as capillary electrophoresis coupled to mass spectrometry and microchip technology. The book also examines the quantitative aspects of capillary electrophoresis, the possibilities of capillary electrochromatography, and the various chiral columns available. Capillary electrophoresis has proven to be an effective tool for chiral separation. This book explains how this technique can be used in the separation of molecules, offering insight into both existing and emerging applications.
