Astec® P-CAP and P-CAP-DP Chiral HPLC Columns (Polycyclic Amine Polymers)

Polycyclic Amine Polymer chiral stationary phases (P-CAP and P-CAP-DP) are based on the reproducible polymerization of a cyclic diamine from the surface of silica. The repeating chiral moiety offers both structural conformation and hydrogen bonding interactions as the driving mechanisms. As a result of the juxtaposition of the binding sites, molecules with two or more functional groups demonstrate the best selectivity.
