Recently, two new immobilized polysaccharides based CSPs, namely tris-(3,5-dimethylphenylcarbamate) derivatives of amylose and cellulose known as Chiralpak IA and Chiralpak IB were introduced, which may be used with a wide range of solvents including standard and prohibited ones. Several racemic piperidine-2,6-dione analogues [aminoglutethimide, p-nitro-glutethimide, p-nitro-5-aminoglutethimide, cyclohexylaminoglutethimide, phenglutarimide and thalidomide] have been resolved on Chiralpak IA and Chiralpak IB columns (25cmx0.46cm). The non-conventional mobile phases used were methyl-tert-butyl ether-THF (90:10, v/v) [I], 100% dichloromethane [II] and 100% acetonitrile [III] separately at a flow rate of 1.0mL/min using a UV detector at 254nm. The resolution factors for Chiralpak IA and Chiralpak IB columns were 1.00-5.33 and 0.33-0.67, respectively. Chiralpak IA column gave better results than Chiralpak IB column for the reported molecules using the developed HPLC conditions. Experimental conditions and the possible chiral recognition mechanisms have been discussed
