|Daicel Chiral Column |
CHIRALPAK® and CHIRALCEL® are well known as chiral chromatography columns. These products are trademarks of Daicel. Inside the chiral columns are chiral resolving agents Chiral Stationary Phases (CSPs). Daicel commenced the development of these products in the 1980s using our expertise in cellulose chemistry.
CHIRALPAK® and CHIRALCEL® are available not only as analytical columns and/or small-scale separation, but also for commercial separations. Simulated moving bed (SMB) is a continuous column separation which allows MT scale production. Currently the largest SMB chiral production in the world is >100MT.
Daicel chiral columns offer excellent resolution of racemates, rapid and easy method development, plus durability and long service life. Daicel chiral columns are essential tools in the pharmaceutical industry.
Recent product developments consist of immobilized CSP, CHIRALPAK® IA, IB, IC, ID, IE and IF. These allow use of a wider range of chromatographic solvents.
