The new Lux i-Amylose-3 media is available in two particle sizes: 3 µm and 5 µm. The Lux 3 µm i-Amylose-3 is ideal for LC/SFC analytical work and chiral screening, while the larger diameter, Lux 5 µm i-Amylose-3, can be used for analysis and purification work as it is available in analytical (2.1-4.6 mm ID), semi-preparative (10 mm ID) and Axia™ pre-packed preparative columns (21.2-50 mm ID).
“Our new i-Amylose-3 chiral selector, Amylose tris(3-chloro-5-methylphenylcarbamate), has complementary but distinct enantioselectivity in comparison to the Lux i-Amylose-1 and i-Cellulose-5 chiral selectors,” explains Ryan Splitstone, Product Marketing Manager for Phenomenex. “It combines the 5-position methyl group of the i-Amylose-1 chiral selector with the electron-withdrawing potential of the 3-position chlorine group of the i-Cellulose-5. Along with strong solvent flexibility, the Lux i-Amylose-3 column’s broad enantioselectivity promotes greater chiral separation success and is quickly becoming known as the go-to chiral column that customers start their screens with.”
With the addition of Lux i-Amylose-3, the Lux chiral column portfolio now includes three immobilized stationary phases and six coated chiral stationary phases. Altogether, this novel chiral column line delivers a wide and complementary range of enantioselectivity for even the most difficult chiral separation projects under normal phase, reversed phase, polar organic, polar ionic, and SFC separation modes.
