ZirChrom Separations Awarded Phase I SBIR Grant to Study Chiral Chromatography

February 2002 - ZirChrom Separations was awarded a $100,000 Phase I SBIR grant from the National Institute of Health to develop two new classes of chiral stationary phases (CSPs). The first of the new CSPs is based on the permanent covalent attachment of a variety of chiral selectors to carbon-clad, porous zirconia microspheres. The second new class of CSPs is based on the modification of zirconia through the use of catecholic anchors via coordination chemistry. This work will be conducted in collaboration with ZirChrom's new strategic partner Cabot Corporation (Billerica, MA). PRESS RELEASE (Adobe Acrobat Reader required)

ZirChrom Study Published in May 2000 Edition of LC*GC Magazine

May 2000 - LC*GC Magazine published an article entitled "Analytical Advantages of Highly Stable Stationary Phases for Reversed-Phase Liquid Chromatography". This article describes a study conducted by technical experts at ZirChrom Separations. In the study, the authors used a wide variety of test solutes to compare the efficiency, selectivity, and hydrophobic retention mechanisms of five commercially available reportedly "stable" HPLC columns based on silica (ODS silica), alumina (PBD coated alumina), zirconia (Zirchrom-PBD and Zirchrom-CARB), and polystyrene cross linked with divinylbenzene (PS-DVB) as the support.
