Beef up the signal: Induced resonance Raman optical activity (IRROA) in the presence of a europium complex enabled the detection of molecular chirality (see picture) with a 104-fold increase in sensitivity relative to that observed with conventional nonresonant vibrational ROA. The method can thus be used as a sensitive tool for the determination of the absolute configuration and enantiomeric excess of organic and biologically relevant compounds.
