ChromTech Application Bulletin No.5 (2004)
Chiral separation of multifunctional complex drug compounds
New drug compounds often contain several functional Benazepril
groups. This means that they are not easily classified, (J.Chrom. A, 818 (1998) 53-60, R.Cirilli et al) ie. if they are acidic, basic or ampholytic. In addition
they may also contain several stereogenic centers. When
developing a method on CHIRAL-AGP, the Method
Development Schemes are very useful, even for multi-
functional compounds. Below are two examples of
compounds with many functionalities as well as withtwo stereogenic centers.
Benazepril contains different nonprotolytic functionalities, aswell as an acidic group. This protolytic function is the most Roxifiban
important group in order to determine the method development (J.Chrom. A, 844 (1999) 171-179, R.C. Williams et al) strategy. Benazepril is a strong acid. In the Method Develop-ment Scheme the starting mobile phase for strong acids is 10mM sodium phosphate buffer pH 7.0. Depending on the resultobtained with this mobile phase, optimization is carried out us-ing variables as pH, organic modifier and buffer. Benazeprilcontains two stereogenic centers. A further complication in thisanalysis is that benazepril is administered as the (S,S)-configu- Roxifiban contains many different nonprotolytic functionalities ration and hydrolyzed in vivo to its active dicarboxylic acid me- together with a basic benzamidine group with a pKa of 11.

In the Method Development Scheme the tion of mobile phase parameters was carried out. An optimized starting mobile phase for hydrophilic amines is 5% 2-propanol mobile phase was found (see figure below).

Then test the corresponding starting mobilephase from the Method Development Scheme. If the compoundcontains protolytic groups of different character, in addition you The New Chiral Application handbook is now
