Solutions of (+)-3-bromocamphor in CH2Cl2 and (–)-3-bromocamphor-π-sulphonic acid in H2O show similar Raman circular intensity differential bands between 800 and 930 cm–1, but with opposite signs, that probaly originate in vibrations of the skeleton in the vicinity of the bromine atom; this indicates that Raman optical activity can correlate absolute configurations by directly probing the appropriate parts of the molecular framework.
