Abstract

The chirality of synthetically prepared calominic acid (CA) oligomers of varying lengths and functionality was studied by circular dichroism spectroscopy. The oligomers were subjected to acid catalyzed intramolecular lactonization and their spectra were recorded for comparison. The distinct differences between the CA oligomers and their lactonized counterparts are discussed.
