Fourier Transform Infrared Vibrational Circular Dichroism: Improvements in Methodology and Mid-Infrared Spectral Results

Volume 38, Number 1 (Feb. 1984) Page 20-26

Lipp, Elmer D.; Nafie, Laurence A.

We report FT-IR-VCD recorded under improved conditions of signal-to-noise ratio, resolution, and spectral range (to 800 cm−1). Detailed descriptions are provided in the areas of artifact suppression, phase correction procedures, and comparison of FT-IR to dispersive VCD measurements. Spectral evidence supports the proposition that VCD absorbance artifacts are a surface effect originating at the optical window-solution interface.
