Each rhomb 4 retardation and these two components therefore rotate the plane of imparts a ~ / phase 20 polarization of the light by an angle of 900 relative to the transmission axis of the first Nicol prism. Thus, in the absence of a circularly dichroic sample, there is a distinct orientation of the second polarizing prism where the two beams are of equivalent intensity. In the presence of a CD active sample, the orientation of the second prism is shifted in order to reestablish this equivalency point reflecting the fact that some of the circularly polarized light incident upon the sample has been absorbed.

6 Stopped-Flow Circular Dichroism The capability of CD to discern subtle conformational differences in large, biologically active molecules is well known. However, many biological associations rely upon a conformational change in one, or both of the interacting entities to facilitate the relationship. For example, the study of a ligand binding process may require detailed information as to the time evolution of the conformational changes in the entities which will eventually define the structural relationship of the ligand to the binding site.

5 Vibrational CD Instrumentation Although the crux of this chapter is devoted to instrumental developments for the measurement of CD in the visible and UV regions, it is appropriate to consider the instrumental modifications necessary to extend CD measurements to the mid-infrared region. The anisotropy ratio, g is given as the ratio of the differential absorbance (or absorptivity) to the parent absorption strength (g = W A ) . Given that the strength of a vibrational transition can be 10 to can vary from 1000times smaller than that of an electronic transition in the UV or visible, the circular dichroism of a vibrational transition is therefore exceedingly small and the instrumentation 31 designed to measure vibrational CD must be capable of providing a high SNR.
