Analytical HPLC methods using derivatized cellulose chiral stationary phases have been developed for separation of the enantiomers of 25 racemic 4-aryl-7,7-dimethyl- or 1,7-trimethyl-1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8-octahydroquinazoline-2,5-diones, condensed derivatives of dihydropyrimidines. The enantiomers of the compounds were resolved by normal-phase chromatography on silica-based cellulose tris(3,5-dimethylphenylcarbamate) (Chiralcel OD) and amylose tris(3,5-dimethylphenylcarbamate) (Chiralpak AD) columns with mobile phases consisting of mixtures of n-hexane and an alcohol (2-propanol, ethanol, or methanol) in different proportions. The mobile phase and the chiral stationary phase were varied to achieve the best resolution. The effect of the concentration of alcohol in the mobile phase was studied. The resolution obtained on the two columns was complementary.
