A comprehensive screening setup is very important for the method development of chiral separations. It is the basis for the identification of the most suitable chiral selector. By having a wide selection of chiral phases included in the screening setup, chances are high of getting a successful separation of the chiral compounds.
If a chiral selector has proved to be suitable for the isolation of the desired compounds, the following approach is then of interest: A test of stationary phases from different manufacturers that are based on the same chiral selector. At first glance, this doesn't sound particularly obvious. But not only is the chiral selector crucial for an efficient separation; the base material also has a great influence on the actual separation.
