A new chiral stationary phase using conalbumin (from chicken egg white) was developed for high-performance liquid chromatography. Chiral resolution of racemic azelastine, an antiallergic drug, was achieved on a conalbumin-conjugated silica gel column. The effects of the pH, the concentration of organic solvents and salts in the mobile phase, and the temperature on the capacity factor and resolution of racemic azelastine were examined. This column shows good stability and can separate optical isomers with an aqueous mobile phase. It should be very useful in studies on pharmacokinetics and in clinical chemistry.
