Circular Dichorism

 

 

   
 
 











 
Circular dichroism (CD) is the property of chiral molecules to absorb the right and left components of circularly polarised light to a different extent.  CD spectroscopy measures this differential absorbance.  Nearly all biological macromolecules are chiral and lend themselves to CD experiments.  The Aviv Circular Dichroism Spectrometer records CD as a function of wavelength, time and temperature.
