Increasing the Accuracy of Optical Rotation
To measure the rotation of linearly polarized light going through an optically active or chiral molecule, researchers use a polarimeter. As Alex White, product specialist at Anton Paar USA (Ashland, VA), says, “There is now more demand for polarimeters in all industries that use or need to measure optically active samples, as polarimeters have the capability of being very accurate, precise, robust, and user-friendly.” He adds, “Anton Paar has seen significant growth in polarimeter sales, particularly in the pharmaceutical, food, and flavor and fragrance industries.
