Written for chemists, chemical engineers and analytical chemists, Preparative Enantioselective Chromatography demonstrates the considerable utility of the technique in contemporary discovery, development and production scale chemistry. By briefly covering basic preparative chromatography then developing the discussion to cover chiral stationary phases for preparative use, method development and practical applications, the first part of this book serves as an ideal introduction to the technology for laboratory and pilot plant scale application. The more detailed information presented in the later chapters, on applications in discovery, process development and large scale or production environments, including case studies and equipment selection issues, ensures the book will serve as a sound reference for experienced separation scientists.
