Abstract

This paper is a survey of the application of plane polarized light to the determination of the configuration of asymmetric organic compounds. The concept of asymmetric structures is discussed and the methods of separation of optical isomers have been indicated. Spectropolarimeters for the determination of rotatory dispersion curves are described and examples of normal and anomalous rotatory dispersion curves are given.
