Water as solvent is strictly forbidden for all cyclodextrin phases. It is recommended to dry the sample and dissolve it in an appropriate nonpolar solvent.



A major advantage of LIPODEX columns are that many compounds can be analyzed without derivatization. However, for certain substances, enantioselectivity can be favorably influenced by formation of derivatives. Regioselective alkylation and/or acylation of the hydroxyl groups leads to lipophilic phases with varying enantioselectivity, which are well suited for GC enantiomer analyses.

It is not possible to make a general prediction about which LIPODEX™ phase could solve a given separation task. Even for compounds with small structural differences or within homologous series, the enantiodifferentiation can be quite different.

  • Base material: cyclic oligosaccharides consisting of six α-cyclodextrin glucose units bonded through α-1,4-linkages
  • hexakis-(2,6-di-O-pentyl-3-O-acetyl)-α-cyclodextrin
  • Ligands: R2=R6=pentyl, R3=acetyl; n=1
  • Recommended for lactones, diols (cyclic carbonates), aminols, aldols (O-TFA), glycerol derivatives (cyclic carbonates)
