Herein, we report on the synthesis and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) resolution of a new atropisomeric C2-symmetry chiral monomer based on the 3,3′-bithiophene core, which was developed to produce novel, inherently oligomeric chiral electroactive materials. The analytical enantioseparation was optimized using the cellulose-type Chiralpak IB-3 column and a mixture of n-hexane–methanol–dichloromethane 90:5:5 (v/v/v) as the mobile phase. During the scale-up of the enantioseparation analytical conditions to a semipreparative level, remarkable deformations in the HPLC profile, such as peak splitting and plateau zones between enantiomeric peaks, were observed. We demonstrate the effects of sample diluent as they relate to distorted peak profiles, as well as provide experimental solutions to prevent the disturbing phenomenon. The optimized chromatographic conditions were exploited to collect milligram amounts of the enantiopure sample, which was submitted to chiroptical and stereochemical characterization studies.

Abstract

Herein, we report on the synthesis and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) resolution of a new atropisomeric C2-symmetry chiral monomer based on the 3,3′-bithiophene core, which was developed to produce novel, inherently oligomeric chiral electroactive materials. The analytical enantioseparation was optimized using the cellulose-type Chiralpak IB-3 column and a mixture of n-hexane–methanol–dichloromethane 90:5:5 (v/v/v) as the mobile phase. During the scale-up of the enantioseparation analytical conditions to a semipreparative level, remarkable deformations in the HPLC profile, such as peak splitting and plateau zones between enantiomeric peaks, were observed. We demonstrate the effects of sample diluent as they relate to distorted peak profiles, as well as provide experimental solutions to prevent the disturbing phenomenon. The optimized chromatographic conditions were exploited to collect milligram amounts of the enantiopure sample, which was submitted to chiroptical and stereochemical characterization studies.
