COSMOSIL 5CSP-HPR column was developed for enantiomeric separation based on ligand exchange chromatography (LEC). LEC for the separation of enantiomers was introduced by Davankov in 1973. This column directly separates the enatiomers (e.g. ?-amino acids, ?-hydroxycarboxylic acids) having two polar functional groups in a near position, using mobile phase containing Cu (II) ions.

The chromatogram above shows enantiomeric separation of
DL-a-selenomethionine which be used in structural analysis of proteins. Since DL-a-selenomethionine contains selenium (a heavy atom), it interacts with the stationary phase strongly, therefore the retention time becomes very long. In order to maintain suitable retention time, it is necessary to raise the CuSO4 concentration. In practice, on the 5CSP-HPR column the retention time can be controlled simply by changing the CuSO4 concentration. The addition of organic solvents like acetonitrile decreases the retention time as well.
