Lux Cellulose-4 LC Columns
Lux Cellulose-4 is a chlorinated cellulose phenyl carbamate derivative
Lux Cellulose-4 LC Columns

This chlorinated cellulose phenyl carbamate derivative offers unique chiral recognition abilities. Expect a high hit percentage on screens with other chlorinated Lux phases.

Separation Mode
Recommended Use
Separation of enantiomers and racemic mixtures by reversed phase, normal phase, polar organic and SFC with a fully porous particle, coated with a polysaccharide stationary phase.
Achieve Greater Chiral Separation Success
Lux Cellulose-4 columns are guaranteed to perform as well or better than the equivalent CHIRALCEL and OX-H Chiral Technologies column. Lux phases can also provide alternative selectivity to other chiral selectors for the most challenging chiral separations. Lux columns offer a wide and complementary range of enantioselectivity for even the most difficult chiral separation projects.

The helical structure of the cellulose creates a complex steric environment that provides stronger interactions and better chiral recognition abilities. Additionally, the selector’s constituents produce hydrogen bonding, dipole, and π-π interactions that all affect the CSPs ability to separate your enantiomers effectively.
