Increasing amount of data considering polymorphism, splice variants and various affinity states of betaadrenoceptors has resulted in a new range of opportunities for enantiopure beta-adrenergic and beta-adrenolytic drug discovery and continuous development of reliable high-throughput screening procedures enabling tissue specific pharmacological evaluation of these drugs. Design and fast pharmacological profiling of single enantiomeric molecules combining beta-adrenoceptor affinity with other pharmacophores is also still challenging ability. As the use of chiral stationary phases in HPLC has particularly benefited from results of supramolecular chemistry, this review summarises recent achievements provided by this technique in deciphering of enatiorecognition phenomena affecting pharmacological selectivity of beta-adrenergics and beta-adrenolytics and modifying the efficiency of currently proposed beta-adrenoceptortargeted therapies. Detailed characteristic of chiral separation performance of these drugs in the range of available supramolecular HPLC systems has also been presented.
