The paper reviews the latest achievements in chiral separation by planar chromatography (PC) since 2001. The emphasis is on cellulose derivatives and, especially, microcrystalline cellulose triacetate (MCTA). A comparison is made with HPLC data retrieved from Chirbase. It is shown that TLC has some interesting features compared with HPLC. Some enantiomer separations have been successfully achieved by TLC whereas no data are available for HPLC. For tribenzoyl cellulose derivatives general trends for resolution by both TLC and HPLC are discussed. The last part of the paper discusses reasons for the scarcity of publications on chiral separations by either PC or overpressured layer chromatography (OPLC). The possibilities of PC for chiral separations are rather unexploited.
