The article shows an example of determination of absolute configuration (AC) for the polyphenolic binaphpthyl dialdehyde, gossypol. It discusses the ability of gossypol to inhibit maturation in human sperm and its potential as an antineoplastic agent. The article details the use of vibrational circular dichroism for AC determinations.

    Cyclic voltammetry readily visualizes the redox properties of many proteins. Net electron exchange between the protein and an electrode produces an electrical current that simultaneously quantitates and characterizes the underlying redox event(s). However, no direct information regarding the...
