82) Racemates of two other thienopyridines had been resolved, and there was no observed advantage to separation in either case.
When we obtained the one-handed helical PTrMA, we did not expect a high chiral recognition ability of the PTrMA, because the polymer is almost entirely surrounded by nonpolar triphenylmethyl groups, which cannot strongly interact with many racemates.

They also discuss the methodologies for determination of the stereoisometric composition of chiral compounds and chiral separation, such as gas and liquid chromatography on chiral stationary phases, capillary electrophoresis, and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy; methodologies for the determination of absolute configuration, such as X-ray analysis, nuclear magnetic resonance, and chiroptical methods; and methodologies for the resolution of racemates, such as crystallization, preparative chromatography, and kinetic resolution.
6) In addition, regulatory guidelines in the United States recommend development of enantiomers over racemates where appropriate.
