Paper Abstract

Vibrational optical activity has evolved to a sophisticated level over the past twenty years. For infrared vibrational circular dichroism (VCD), instrumental techniques involving dispersive and Fourier transform spectrometers became well established before the development of satisfactory theoretical methods. In Raman optical activity (ROA), there has been a revolution recently in instrumental techniques and a broadening of the theoretical basis for describing ROA intensities. In this paper we will describe the instrumental basis for the measurement of VCD and ROA and discuss the potential of vibrational optical activity for applications in process analysis.
