Efficient self-disproportionation of enantiomers of several non-racemic chiral amines was achieved through conversion to N-acetamides and subsequent MPLC using an achiral column. The MPLC of these non-racemic N-acetamide derivatives gave the chart having a clear boundary between two fractions. Thus, in the less polar fraction, remarkable enantiomer enrichment was observed (>99%ee), while the ee of more polar fraction was considerably reduced. The magnitude of the enantiomer enrichments and depletions strongly depended on substituent on the amino group.
