Until now the favored method for separating racemic pairs of underivatized alcohols, diols, and phenylsubstituted amines has been gas chromatography on cyclodextrin phases. However, certain enantiomers of saturated chiral hydrocarbons could not be resolved in this way because they lack the functional groups necessary to undergo "intensive" diastereomeric interactions with the cyclodextrins. The present study describes a gas-chromatographic technique for resolution of saturated aliphatic… CONTINUE READING
