Course Description
This introductory short course is designed for researchers faced with the separation or analysis of optically active compounds. The goal of the course is to familiarize the participants with the best available options when confronted with the need for chiral separations. The first part of the material to be covered will include a review of the terminology of chirality and a brief overview of the theory behind enantiomeric separations. In addition, new products and metabolites will be discussed. Participants should have a basic knowledge of chromatography and have previous experience with routine HPLC (reversed phase and normal phase), GC and CE.

Target Audience
Pharmaceutical scientists, synthetic organic chemists, regulatory scientists.

Course Outline
HPLC, GC and CE separation of enantiomers.

Course Instructor's Biography
Daniel W. Armstrong is the Robert A. Welch Professor of Chemistry at the University of Texas at Arlington. He earned a B.S. from Washington and Lee University and an MS in chemical oceanography and Ph.D. degree in chemistry from Texas A&M. He is the Associate Editor of Analytical Chemistry, plus the Editor of the Chirality Journal, Section Editor of Amino Acids and on the editorial board of most major Separations journals. He has authored over 400 technical papers and has received numerous awards and honors for both research and teaching. Professor Armstrong first developed many of the techniques for enantioseparations and elucidated the theory and mechanism behind them.
