The definitive guide to chiroptical spectroscopy
Providing an introduction to the methods of chiroptical spectroscopy, this two-volume set presents comprehensive coverage of the most important and up-to-date methods of dealing with chiral molecules, which can discriminate between left and right circularly polarized light.
Addressing basic principles, instrumentation, and applications in the natural sciences, Comprehensive Chiroptical Spectroscopy is the only book of its kind to provide cutting-edge, in-depth coverage of recent developments and frontier topics in the field, looking at the most important applications of chiroptical spectroscopy to problems in organic and inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, and structural biology.
Topics covered in the first volume include:
Electronic circular dichroism
Optical rotatory dispersion
Infrared vibrational circular dichroism
Nonlinear chiroptical spectroscopy
Raman optical activity
X-ray-detected and photoelectron circular dichroism
Imaging of crystals
Theoretical simulation of chiroptical spectra
And much more
With each chapter written by one or more leading authorities in the field, Comprehensive Chiroptical Spectroscopy presents the ideal tools needed to determine chiral molecular structures and associated molecular properties, making it a must-have for both students and researchers.
