BioTools ChiralRAMAN-2X Raman Optical Activity (ROA) Spectrometer

The ChiralRAMAN-2X ROA spectrometer measures the difference in intensity of Raman scattering from chiral molecules in left- and right-circularly polarized light, providing structural information about the chirality of that molecule. Although ROA shares many similarities to vibrational circular dichroism (VCD), there are so many vibrational bands in an ROA spectrum that it is not hindered by the spectral bands resulting from the use of a solvent. As such, ROA is often used to probe a material’s structure and behavior in aqueous solutions.
