Two new types of methylcalix[4]resorcinarene-bonded stationary phases, (3-(C-methylcalix[4]resorcinarene)-2-hydroxypropoxy)-propylsilyl-appended silica particles (MCR-HPS) and bromoacetate-substituted MCR-HPS particles (BAMCR-HPS), have been synthesized and used as chiral stationary phases for high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for the first time. The synthetic stationary phases are characterized by means of elemental analysis and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy. The chromatographic behavior of MCR-HPS and BAMCR-HPS was studied with several disubstituted benzenes and some chiral drug compounds under both normal phase and reversed-phase conditions. The results show that MCR-HPS has excellent selectivity for the separation of aromatic positional isomers and BAMCR-HPS exhibits excellent performance for separation of enantiomers of chiral compounds.
