Chiral separations remain high on the priority list of drug developers. Liquid chromatography and supercritical fluid chromatography continue to vie for dominance in the chiral separation market but might be reaching the state of complementary methodologies. New separation technologies and new advances in current products continue to elevate the state of the art of chiral separations. Automation in both screening for chiral selectivity and preparative purifications has helped make significant gains in productivity in this area.
