Application of liquid crystals in liquid chromatography. From low- to high-molecular-weight liquid crystals

  • F. Gritti
  • G. Félix
Review

Summary

The use of liquid crystals as stationary phases for liquid chromatography is reviewed. The synthetic pathways used for covalent immobilization of low-molecular-weight liquid crystals on the silica-gel surface are discussed. The techniques used to characterize stationary phase structure are also presented. Finally, trend for replacement of low-molecular-weight liquid crystals by liquid-crystalline polymers, either coated or bonded, is described. Examples are given of the separation of specific chemical compounds on liquid-crystalline stationary phases.

Key Words

Column liquid chromatography Review of liquid-crystal stationary phases Bonded stationary phases Coated liquid-crystal polymers Molecular-shape recognition
