Vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectra provide information on the solution conformations of chiral molecules. The CH-, OH-, NH-, and C equals O-stretching VCD features are particularly useful conformational probes. Molecules of pharmaceutical interest studied by VCD include biomimetic iron carriers, unsaturated peptides, the anticancer drug taxol and a series of type I antiarrhythmic drugs.
