Paper Abstract

Vibrational optical activity has emerged as an important new technique for probing local solution conformation in chiral biological molecules. Vibrational circular dichroism, in particular, has provided information on conformations and intramolecular hydrogen bonding in sugars, amino acids and amino acid derivatives, small peptides, and catecholamine neurotransmitters and related molecules through application of the coupled oscillator and ring-current mechanisms.
