Optical Rotation So why do chiral molecules rotate the plane of polarization? A very simple classical physics explanation is that the effect of an electric field is to accelerate charged particles in the direction of the field. A molecule can be considered as a collection of charged particles (electrons and nuclei). If a molecule has no plane of symmetry, then the charged particles on average must be accelerated by the field in a partially circular path. Circulation of charge leads to a magnetic force that interacts with the electromagnetic force of the applied field and results in a slight shift of the electric vector away from the initial plane of polarization.

One carbon, two hydrogen, and two chlorine atoms). His explanation was that four substituents on carbon were arranged in a tetrahedron. He also concluded that, if correct, this would lead to mirror-image isomers for molecules with four different substituents. This idea was at first ridiculed by his senior colleagues, but, now, of course, is recognized as the basis for organic (carbon-based) molecular structure. He was the recipient of the first Nobel Prize in Chemistry for this contribution in 1901.

Helix, but the principle and effect are the same for all chiral molecules. 5. Biot introduced the convention that a rotation of the plane of polarization in the clockwise direction to an observer viewing the beam as it is going away is said to be positive, and is 34 Molecular Chirality in Living Systems Exiting the sample cell φ Entering the sample cell The rotation of plane-polarized light. The counterclockwise rotation shown in this figure is denoted as (À) and is called levorotatory. See color insert.
