  • Title: Characteristics of chiral molecules using chiroptical methods supported by computational chemistry

  • Description: The main interest of our Laboratory for Spectroscopy, Molecular Modeling and Structure Determination is characterizing chiral molecules using molecular spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction and computational methods. Chirality brings molecules a new dimension. For example, enantiomers can differ in bioactivity, chiroptical spectra, interactions with other chiral molecules, organoleptic properties. New chiral materials can find use in asymmetric synthesis and catalysis, as well as in chiral separation, chiral optoelectronics, chiral sensing, etc. Recently, we have synthesized chiral naphthalenediimides based on which we have constructed an enantioselective sensor for teratogenic (S)- and therapeutic (R)-Thalidomide in blood plasma. Also, we studied new chiroptic ECD-Raman spectra using some atropisomeric naphthalenediimides. The PhD thesis can be devoted to some of the following topics:
  • synthesis,
  • experimental chiroptical spectroscopy,
  • computational chiroptical spectroscopy,
  • crystal structure determination
  • of a series of chiral substances such as chiral organic semiconductor molecules or chiral lanthanide coordination complexes, etc.
