Paper Abstract

The linear and nonlinear chiro-optical properties of chiral molecules are typically investigated by employing a few sensitive to optical activity spectroscopic methods, such as circular dichroism (CD), optical rotation, infrared absorption and vibrational circular dichroism (VCD). In this study, the spectra of differential absorption between left-and right circularly polarized light of carvone’s R and S mirror-image configurations of enantiomers in vapor and solution phases are presented for both electronic (CD) and vibrational (VCD) energy levels. Furthermore, well-resolved ultraviolet, visible and infrared absorption spectra of carvone’s individual enantiomers in vapor and solution phases are also reported and thoroughly discussed. Lastly, a comparison will be drawn between the R and S enantiomers linear versus nonlinear optical activity.
