Vibrational Optical Activity: A Mature New Field of Vibrational Spectroscopy
Presenter: Laurence A. Nafie
Winner of the 2013 Pittsburgh Spectroscopy Award
In this short virtual event, Prof. Nafie presents the extent of the routine use of VCD to determine absolute configuration of pharmaceutical and natural product molecules, as well as the use of VCD to reveal the underlying supramolecular chiral structure of amyloid fibrils of interest in relation to the incidence of neurological diseases. Online users will then have the opportunity to put live questions to Professor Nafie in a Q&A session at the end of this presentation.
The 2013 Pittsburgh Spectroscopy Award is presented to Professor Laurence A. Nafie for his outstanding contributions in the field of spectroscopy. Larry is perhaps the world's most foremost expert on vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) and Raman optical activity (ROA).
