Provides current knowledge about separation and interactions of asymmetric molecules, as well as experimental and commercial ma-terials such as columns, instruments, and derivatization reagents. Extensive applications are tabulated by both chromato-graphic technique and compound class, and discussions of recent special topics are useful in planning new work. This unique volume organizes most of the significant, currently available knowledge re-garding the chromatographic separations of stereoisomers. Both diastereomers and the more difficult, controversial area of enan-tiomers are covered in depth with respect to GC, HPLC, and classi-cal chromatographic techniques. Analytical, organic, pharmaceuti-cal, and other chemists as well as pharmacologists and bio-chemists are among those whose work appears in the more than 800 references cite.
