A new chiral stationary phase based on continuous bed (CB) technology using L-prolinamide as a chiral selector was prepared. Its ability for enantioseparation of amino acids and a-hydroxy acids by ligand-exchange CEC was compared with that of a CB containing L-4-hydroxyproline as chiral selector. Preparation was done by a one-step in situ copolyermerization procedure using methacrylamide as monomer, vinylsulfonic acid as charge providing agent and piperazine diacrylamide as crosslinker. L-Prolinamide showed marked enantioselective properties for the separation of amino acids and α-hydroxy acids. Furthermore, we show the possibility of simultaneous enantioseparation of amino acids and α-hydroxy acids using the CB with L-4-hydroxyproline as chiral selector.
