4th Annual UMR Undergraduate Research Symposium (1994: Mar. 23, Rolla, MO)


In the field of chromatographic separations, the need for new chiral stationary phases is always in demand. Many stationary phases already exist, some of the more popular being cyclodextrin or protein based phases. During this research, a new class of chiral selectors were discovered and evaluated for chiral recognition. Vancomycin, thiostrepton, and rifamycin B all belong to the macrocyclic antibiotic family. Not only can this new class of chiral selectors be used to resolve compounds that cannot be separated on any other column, but it is also more stable and has much greater capacity than protein based columns.
