"Chiral analysis refers to the quantification of individual component enantiomers of racemic drug substances or
pharmaceutical compounds. Other synonyms commonly used include enantiomer analysis, enantiomeric
analysis, and enantioselective analysis. Chiral analysis includes all analytical procedures focused on
the characterization of the properties of chiral drugs. Chiral analysis is usually performed with chiral separation
methods where the enantiomers are separated on an analytical scale and simultaneously assayed for each
