Paper Abstract

Natural optical activity is a uniquely sensitive probe of molecu-lar stereochemistry capable of yielding fine details of the three-dimensional structure of molecules in their individual environments. It is ordinarily manifested by optical rotation or circular dichroism of light that has propagated through a chiral medium. Observation is consequently limited to transparent samples or to samples that can be made transparent through dilute solution.
