Chiral separations in food analysis

Chiral separations in food analysis
The determination of enantiomers is a very important topic in different areas including pharmaceutical, biomedical, agrochemical and food fields. In fact these compounds possess quite similar physical–chemical characteristics and can exhibit different properties. Their separation can be obtained when the two enantiomers interact with a chiral environment. This is currently done in separation science employing analytical methods such as conventional or miniaturized liquid chromatography (LC), gas chromatography (GC), supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC), and electromigration techniques such as capillary electrophoresis (CE) and capillary electrochromatography (CEC). In this paper we overview the importance of analyzing enantiomers in food matrices and beverages. The selected applications include data available in literature in the period 2013–February 2017 and considering LC, GC, SFC, CE, CEC and capillary-LC.
