Abstract: Several years ago we presented a number of Vibrational Circular Dichroism (VCD) spectra of natural compounds in the CH-stretching 2nd and 3rd overtone $regions^{a}$. In that paper we pointed out that normal modes and local modes in chiral molecules can be distinguished by means of VCD spectra. The presence or absence of VCD rotational strengths was accounted for as deriving from mechanical coupling between bond electric dipole moments. Based on recently acquired VCD $data{^{b}}$ and on further theoretical $analysis{^{c}}$, we have found that also local modes can generate VCD spectra of characteristic aspect, due to the interaction of CH-oscillators with polarizable groups. A very short review of our data will be reported and rationalized in the present talk.
