Paper Abstract

The first measurements of circular dichroism (CD) using a polarizing Michelson interferometer (PMI) are presented. PMI-CD was observed for infrared electronic transitions in the rare-earth metal complex, praseodymium-L-tartrate between 2400-2000 cm -1. Following further improvements in instrumental technique, vibrational CD was measured for (-)-α-pinene in the region 1350 to 900 cm-1. Comparisons to previous infrared CD measurements of these molecules shows excellent agreement.
