Several authors have recently reported the use of micelle polymers, polymer surfactants and dendrimers as pseudostationary phases in electrokinetic chromatography. These reports have demonstrated the effectiveness of these phases for a variety of applications, including the separation and analysis of hydrophobic compounds and chiral compounds and the application of mass spectrometric detection. This review covers developments in this area since the first introduction of polymeric pseudo-stationary phases in 1992. The use of polymeric micelles in electrokinetic chromatography is compared briefly with capillary electrochromatography. Some thoughts on future directions in this area are presented.
- Enantiomer separation
- Polymer pseudo-stationary phases
- Stationary phases, pseudo
