A novel co-pillar[4+1]arene incorporating two bromo-octyl substituents has been synthesised for the first time, using microwave irradiation in high yield (88%) in under four minutes, and bound to the surface of chromatographic silica particles. The resulting new stationary phase has been successfully utilised to separate xylene isomers via liquid chromatographic techniques.
