J-1700 Circular Dichroism Spectrophotometer

J-1700 Circular Dichroism SpectrophotometerThe J-1700 was specifically designed for more demanding near-infrared CD applications. In addition to the enhanced far-UV capabilities, researchers probing the chiral activity of molecules in the NIR spectral region now have the ability to obtain data at wavelengths up to 2500 nm. The InGaAs detector has a wavelength range from 900-2500 nm, while the PMT ranges from 163-960 nm. The automatic detector interchange allows researchers to obtain both far-UV and NIR measurements without having to manually switch detectors. The addition of a grating monochromator to the double-prism monochromator setup provides low stray light and high light intensity, generating CD signals with high S/N performance throughout a large spectral range.

NIR-CD applications vary from conformational and chirality studies of metal coordination complexes to tuning chiral properties of nanomaterials. Additionally, Magnetic Circular Dichroism (MCD) can be used in conjunction with NIR-CD to probe a chromophore’s electronic structure as well as to induce chirality in compounds.
