Specific Anion Effects on the Optical Rotation of Glucose and Serine

Lo Nostro, Pierandrea; Ninham, Barry; Milani, Silvia; Fratoni, Laura; Baglioni, Piero


Optical activity is directly related to molecular conformation through the anisotropic polarizabilities of molecules and the refractive index of materials. L-amino acids and D-sugars are characteristic essential bioactive molecules. Since molecular recognition and enzyme activity are related to the conformation of substrates, the relevance of optical activity to biological processes is evident. Specific ion, or Hofmeister, effects that occur with electrolytes at moderately high concentrations...[Show more]
