The determination of the absolute configuration (AC) of chiral molecules is an important issue in organic chemistry. Vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) is a useful technology to measure the circular dichroism of chiral molecules in the IR region, which remarkably expands the application of circular dichroism to the determination of AC. The AC of chiral molecules can be determined by comparison of the experimental VCD spectra with the theoretical VCD ones obtained on the basis of quantum chemical calculations.

Key words: chiral molecule, absolute configuration, quantum chemical calculation, vibrational circular dichroism
