Chiral Separations will be the topic of discussion during a mid-day session on Wednesday at HPLC 2008 in Baltimore.

Torgny Fornstedt from the University of Uppsala will chair the three-presentation session, which will take place in Harborside Ballroom C.

A group from the University of Vienna will lead off the event with a presentation on "Novel Zwitterionic Chiral Ion Exchanger versus Chiral Cation and Anion Exchangers, A Critical Survey."

Following them will be Irving W. Wainer from the National Institute of Aging, National Institutes of Health, Baltimore, Maryland. Wainer will discuss the "Investigation of Molecular Recognition in Biological Systems Using Cellular Membrane Affinity Chromatography."

Finally, a trio from Drexel University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, will wrap things up with a talk on "Optimization of Chiral Microemulsion Electrokinetic Chromatography in the Presence and Absence of Enantioselective Synergies: A Win-Win Situation."

The HPLC conference was originated in 1973 with the idea of highlighting advances in the field of liquid-phase separations. The meetings alternate between Europe and the United States with even years being in the US.
