Chiral separation using hybrid of preferential crystallization moderated by a membrane barrier
MetadataShow full item record
The major innovation of this work is an establishment of a novel chiral separation process using preferential crystallization coupled with a membrane barrier. This hybrid process was proved to be promising from a significant increase in product yield and purity compared to existing chiral separation processes. This work sets up a process design platform to extend the use of this hybrid process to a separation of other mixtures. This novel process especially is a promising alternative for chiral separation of pharmaceutical compounds which include more than fifty percent of approved drugs world-wide. A better performance chiral separation technique contributes to cut the operating cost and to reduce the price of chiral drugs.
