PMID 15628123

Abstract

The adsorption isotherms of the enantiomers of 2,2,2-trifluoro-1-(9-anthryl)-ethanol from a toluene-acetonitrile solution onto a Chiris Chiral AX:QD1 column were measured using the pulse method. The isotherm data were modeled with a bi-Langmuir isotherm model, indicating the presence of two different types of adsorption sites on this stationary phase, nonselective and enantioselective sites. The latter are homogeneous but interact with both enantiomers, albeit with different energies. The thermodynamic characteristics of these two types of sites were characterized by their adsorption constants and saturation capacities and by the influence of the temperature on these different parameters.
