Abstract

Raman Optical Activity (ROA) in the $200 - 1200 cm^{-1}$ region, and infrared Vibrational Circular Dichroism (VCD) in the $1000 - 3000 cm^{-1}$ region, have been observed for neat chlorofluoroacetic acid and chlorofluoroacetate in aqueous solution. These species are probably the smallest systems studied to date by vibrational optical activity (VOA). Thus, the interpretation of the VOA spectra of these molecules provides new insight on the origin of VOA in terms of the atomic displacements. The VOA measurements have been accompanied by detailed vibrational measurements on chlorofluoroacetic acid, deuterochlorofluoroacetic acid, chlorofluoroacetate and deuterofluorochloro acetate Calculated VCD intensities, based on a Urey-Bradley force field, will be compared to the experimental values.
