Optical Activity of Tartaric Acid Stereoisomers

Logo for Optical Activity of Tartaric Acid Stereoisomers
 This is an automated demonstration enabling the user to measure the optical rotatory dispersion of a mixture of optical isomersOptical activity of compounds in solution can be measured with a polarimeter, shown schematically in the upper part of the graphic. The angle of rotation of plane polarized light, conventionally the sodium D-line at 589 nm, is determined using two polarizers. (In the graphic, an idealized incident polarizer is reduced to a vertical slit coincident with the plane of... More
