    In this study an enantioseparation method for rac-bambuterol (5-(2-(tert-butylamino)-1-hydroxyethyl)-1,3-phenylene bis(dimethylcarbamate)) via diastereoisomeric salt formation with o-chloromandelic acid was developed. The enantiomeric excess (ee) values and chemical purities of the desired products were confirmed by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) using chiral stationary phase and reverse-phase HPLC analyses, respectively. The ee values and the chemical purities both exceeded 99%. Animal experiments showed that (R)-bambuterol was a potent inhibitor for histamine-induced asthma reactions. (S)-bambuterol was ineffective in relaxing the airways. Both enantiomers increased heart rates in beagles. Therefore, replacing rac-bambuterol with (R)-bambuterol could be beneficial for asthma patients. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
