This timely book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of CD spectroscopy and its application to the problems of structural biology. In particular, the newer methods of synchrotron radiation circular dichroism SRCD and linear dichroism LD are fully covered. Use of SRCD allows data between nm to be measured, where additional information content is obtained plus the ability to characterise biomolecules in diverse environments. The method has value in protein fold recognition and potential for use in structural genomics. The editors, Professor B. Janes of Queen Mary College, University of London in addition to their wide research experience have extensive experience of running and teaching internationally at workshops on CD. Based on this experience, practical aspects, such as instrumentation, calibration and sampling are covered comprehensively in the book, which has been undertaken partly as a result of demand by those who participated in the workshops or by those who did not themselves participate but heard excellent reports of the workshops.
Circular dichroism CD is dichroism involving circularly polarized light, i. It is exhibited in the absorption bands of optically active chiral molecules. CD spectroscopy has a wide range of applications in many different fields. Most notably, UV CD is used to investigate the secondary structure of proteins. Electromagnetic radiation consists of an electric E and magnetic B field that oscillate perpendicular to one another and to the propagating direction,  a transverse wave. While linearly polarized light occurs when the electric field vector oscillates only in one plane, circularly polarized light occurs when the direction of the electric field vector rotates about its propagation direction while the vector retains constant magnitude. At a single point in space, the circularly polarized-vector will trace out a circle over one period of the wave frequency, hence the name.
Circular Dichroism Spectroscopy of Biomacromolecules
Here we review studies that provided important information about conformational properties of DNA using circular dichroic CD spectroscopy. The conformational properties include the B-family of structures, A-form, Z-form, guanine quadruplexes, cytosine quadruplexes, triplexes and other less characterized structures. CD spectroscopy is extremely sensitive and relatively inexpensive. This fast and simple method can be used at low- as well as high-DNA concentrations and with short- as well as long-DNA molecules. The samples can easily be titrated with various agents to cause conformational isomerizations of DNA. The course of detected CD spectral changes makes possible to distinguish between gradual changes within a single DNA conformation and cooperative isomerizations between discrete structural states. It enables measuring kinetics of the appearance of particular conformers and determination of their thermodynamic parameters.
Circular dichroism CD spectroscopy is one of few structure assessmet methods that can be utilized as an alternative and amplification to many conventional analysis techniques with advatages such as rapid data collection and ease of use. Since most of the efforts and time spent in advancement of chemical sciences are devoted to elucidation and analysis of structure and composition of synthesized molecules or isolated natural products rather than their preparation, one should be aware of all the relevant techniques available and know which instrument can be employed as an alternative to any other technique. The aim of this module is to introduce CD technique and discuss what kind of information one can collect using CD. Additionally, the advantages of CD compared to other analysis techniques and its limitations will be shown. As CD spectroscopy can analyze only optically active species, it is convenient to start the module with a brief introduction of optical activity.

Chiral molecules exhibit different absorbance for left and right circularly polarized light.
Сьюзан не могла не восхититься умом Танкадо. Не открыв своего алгоритма, он доказал АНБ, что тот не поддается дешифровке. Стратмор протянул Сьюзан газетную вырезку. Это был перевод рекламного сообщения Никкей симбун, японского аналога Уолл-стрит джорнал, о том, что японский программист Энсей Танкадо открыл математическую формулу, с помощью которой можно создавать не поддающиеся взлому шифры. Формула называется Цифровая крепость, говорилось в заметке, и доступна для ознакомления в Интернете. Программист намеревался выставить ее на аукционе и отдать тому, кто больше всех заплатит.
