Phenomenex Inc. has extended its Lux chiral bulk media line to meet the needs of preparative chromatography applications. Lux Cellulose-3 and Cellulose-4, unique and complementary chiral stationary phases, are now available in a 10-µm particle size for preparative and batch chromatography applications. The 10-µm particles are specifically designed for batch chromatography, and columns packed with these particles deliver increased efficiencies over 20-µm particles, enabling the use of shorter columns. This saves both time and money by reducing solvent consumption. The four 10-µm Lux Cellulose chiral phases benefit from a unique manufacturing process and silica coating technology. Lux Cellulose-3 utilizes Cellulose tris (4-methylbenzoate) as the chiral selector, a variant cellulose ester derivative that offers unique chiral recognition abilities to provide enantioseparation when other phases fail. Lux Cellulose-4 incorporates Cellulose tris (4-chloro-3-methylphenylcarbamate) as the chiral selector—a chlorinated cellulose phenylcarbamate derivative that offers unique chiral recognition abilities.
