Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The 1-hydroxy epimers of chloramphenicol and thiamphenicol formed from the reduction of the respective 1-oxo derivatives with [3H]NaBH4 have been separated preparatively by high-pressure liquid chromatography on a μBondapak C18 column. This separation procedure permits the facile and rapid preparation of the 1-3H-labeled derivatives of chloramphenicol and its analogs.
