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.

Both the editor and the authors are to be commended for sharing their insights and experience in such an easily accessed volume.
The entire volume is lavishly illustrated with tables, graphs and drawings, the design and execution and placement of which are as perfect as the text material they illustrate."Current Engineering Practice
′The book is a delight to read.′
′Cox′s book provides chemists and chemical engineers with valuable hints and advises. The authors are, in part, experienced practitioners in the industry and academics at the forefront of this field...at every stage, material is logically presented and easy to access.′
′In summary, this is an excellent compiled book with well–produced text′
