Raman Optical Activity (ROA) is a vibrational spectroscopy technique that relies on the difference in the Raman scattering intensity of left and right circularly polarized light scattered due to the chirality of the molecule.

Raman optical activity principle

The basic principle of Raman optical activity is that there is interference between the light wave scattered by the polarizability and the optical activity tensor of the chiral molecule, which causes the intensity of the right-handed and left-handed circularly polarized scattered light beams to be different. The intensity difference spectrum recorded on a series of wavenumbers reveals information about the chiral centers in the sample molecules. According to the polarization state of incident light and scattered light, Raman optical activity can be observed in various forms. For example, in the Scattered Circular Polarization (SCP) experiment, the incident light is linearly polarized, and the difference in circular polarization of the scattered light is measured. In dual circular polarization (DCP), both incident light and scattered light are circularly polarized in the same phase (DCPI) or out of phase (DCPII).

Overall solutions

First, optimize the molecular structure, calculate the frequency at the same time, and save the inspection file

Respectively read the structure and wave function in the check file in the previous step as the initial structure and initial guess of the wave function, and use a larger base set to calculate the raman optical activity.

As mentioned above, Raman optical activity can provide information about the chiral center of a molecule, which allows us to judge the absolute configuration of the molecule by comparing the Raman optical activity spectrum measured by calculation and experiment.
