WHY TEACH VCD?
The answers will surprise you.
VCD (Vibrational Circular Dichroism) is a spectroscopic technique that is used worldwide by major pharmaceutical companies, regulatory agencies and top academic institutions as a sensitive probe of chiral and biological molecules In pharma, it has become a top choice for determination of absolute configuration of chiral drugs. But unfortunately pharmaceutical companies cannot find students to hire with knowledge of VCD. That is why NOW is the time to start teaching VCD!
IN COLLEGES & UNIVERSITIES AROUND THE WORLD
VCD can be taught in undergraduate and graduate levels; and In one or several experiments the following skills can be learned:
– Vibrational Spectroscopy
(IR & Raman)
– Fourier transform instrumentation
– Asymmetrical Synthesis
– Molecular modeling
– ab initio Calculations
– Conformational Analysis
– Chiral Chromatography
Join the dozens of institutions that already teach VCD.
These are only a few:
– California Institute of Technology
– York College
– Vanderbilt University
– University of Zurich
– Imperial College London
– University of Texas, Dallas
– Charles University (Prague)
– University of California, Santa Cruz
– Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry
– University of Antwerp
– University of Geneva
Help educate the next generation of scientists.
Give them the edge they need with new, innovative technology… TEACH VCD!
