Investigation and control of chirality, which is executed almost exclusively using chromatographic techniques, ranks among the most difficult separation tasks. As the first book devoted to this topic, Thin Layer Chromatography in Chiral Separations and Analysis presents updated information on this important field. The first part of this book discusses the problem of chirality in general and the technical possibilities of carrying out enantiomer separations in detail. Addressing significant application areas, the second part of the text provides a comprehensive overview of enantioseparations and densitometric analyses that have been successfully achieved using thin layer chromatography.
