Chiroptical properties

  • are the properties of chiral substances – arising from their non-destructive interaction – with anisotropic refraction.
  • is a properties that can differentiate between the two enantiomers of chiral compound.

Scopes are :

  • qualitative and quantitative determination of chirality of molecules.
  • Widespread application of another chiroptical technique, circular dichroism.
  • Vibrational CD and its counter part in Raman spectroscopy.

Techniques and principle:

  • Polarity and optical rotatory dispersion – Refraction
  • Circular dichroism – Absorption
  • Circular polarization of emission – Emission
