Crystallization from the melt was applied to separate components of stereoisomeric mixtures. Binary phase diagrams were determined by DSC and used in the design of the crystallization process. The method is illustrated by the separation of diastereoisomeric (cis-trans) permethrinic acid and by that of the enantiomeric excess and racemic fraction of the Corey-lacton.
