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:
- 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!
At BioTools we have created a company that brings to life dedicated instrumentation that no one else has dared to create, such as ChiralIR™, ChiralRAMAN™ and BioRAMAN™. We are here to help you solve some of life’s most intriguing bio-problems. We concentrate our efforts in the areas of proteins and chirality by specializing in two types of pharmaceuticals: Chiral-organic and protein-based drugs.

For those interested in determining if Vibrational Circular Dichroism (VCD) analysis is appropriate to their applications or specific chiral molecules, BioTools offers feasibility studies using the ChiralIR™ instrument. Studies include VCD measurements of particular molecules, determinations of percent enantiomeric excess (% ee), theoretical ab initio VCD calculations and determinations of absolute configuration.
Contract Laboratory Service
We specialize in the analysis of proteins, peptides, carbohydrates, DNA, and chiral molecules by VCD, protein FT-IR, Optical Rotation, and UV Visible Spectroscopy.
We now also offer services for Chiral Chromatography and Absolute Configuration of Chiral molecules.
