Vibrational circular dichroism and Raman optical activity are no longer curious novelties in the field of molecular spectroscopy. The development of commercial instrumentation and reliable ab initio calculations for predicting theoretical spectra has made the use of these methods a routine, both in academia and pharmaceutical industry. This school is aimed at providing attendees with solid concepts of experimental and computational vibrational optical activity for assessing stereochemical properties of natural products, synthetic compounds, pharmaceuticals, proteins, and carbohydrates. With an exciting line-up of speakers, this two-day event will certainly contribute to the advancement and consolidation of this research area in Brazil.
