Abstract

Vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) and Raman optical activity (ROA), collectively know as vibrational optical activity (VOA), are powerful spectroscopic methods for the characterization of tridimensional structure of small molecules and macromolecules, as well as their interactions in solution. By combining the richness of spectral information from IR and Raman spectroscopies with sensitivity to chirality, VCD and ROA become excellent tools for determining the absolute configuration of small molecules and secondary structure of macromolecules. Despite their positive characteristics, both techniques are scantily used in Brazil. Therefore, the main goal of this project is to create the first VOA research group in the country in the Department of Chemistry at UFSCar, in order to determine the absolute configuration of natural and synthetic compounds, as well as to conduct systematic studies on the mechanisms of interaction between analytes and stationary phases used in classic chiral liquid chromatography and bioaffinity chromatography. This proposal is intended to combine the expertise of the proponent in VOA and quantum-chemical calculations with the demand for stereochemical analysis of two groups of excellence at UFSCar headed by Profs. Quezia B. Cass and Maria Fátima G. F. da Silva. Finally, this proposal aims to contribute to the development of high-quality human resources at UFSCar and also to boost the internationalization of São Paulo State research, since Prof. Laurence A. Nafie from Syracuse University, one of the world's leading researchers in the field will be part of the research team. (AU)
