Circular Dichroism Spectroscopy


Circular dichroism (CD) is the differential absorption between left and right circularly polarised light on passage through a sample. Measurement of CD gives structural and enantiomeric information on proteins, other biomolecules and liquid crystals. STFC’s new circular dichroism detection system overcomes the sensitivity and speed issues faced by conventional CD detection system.
