Detection of Chiral Compounds
Using HPLC with CD Detection
Chiral detectors provide valuable information since

provides sensitivity 10-100x greater than optical
rotation-based chiral detectors. This provides highly sensitive and selective detection of chiral compounds that have a UV absorption in the 220-420 nm range. The CD detector also provides a UV signal in addition to the CD signal. This allows optical purity determinations without chiral separation. CD detection is also unaffected by gradient elutions or other changes in non-chiral components during elution. Detection of chiral compounds can be done with or without prior chiral separation using the CD detector. Polarimetric or optical rotation-based detectors remain a viable alternative for compounds that do not contain a chromophore by allowing universal detection with reduced sensitivities. These detectors can still be used for the majority of chiral compounds and are excellent for sugars. Jasco is currently the only manufacturer capable of providing chiral detectors based on both of
these techniques as well as many other HPLC
