In this work the three dipeptides, Z-l-alanyl-l-glutaric acid (Z-l-ala-l-glu), Z-l-phenylanyl-l-glutaric acid (Z-l-phe-l-glu) and Z-glycyl-l-glutaric acid (Z-gly-l-glu) were tested as chiral counter ions for enantiomeric resolution of amino alcohols. The influence of solute and counter ion structure upon retention and enantioselectivity was evaluated. The chiral counter ions were dissolved in a mixture of polar solvents, i.e., ethyl acetate, methanol and acetonitrile and the achiral solid phase used was porous graphitic carbon, marketed as Hypercarb. The enantioselectivities observed for the tested solutes were highly influenced by the used chiral counter ion structure. For example no enantioselectivity was observed for (R,S)-alprenolol using Z-l-ala-l-glu while a separation factor (α) of 1.59 was obtained using Z-l-phe-l-glu as chiral counter ion. High selectivity factors (α > 2.7) were observed between enantiomers of tertiary amines using Z-l-phe-l-glu as counter ion. Interestingly, the structure of the counter ion, as well as the charge on Z-l-phe-l-glu and the mobile phase solvent composition, influenced the retention order of the enantiomers.
