Applications of Raman Spectroscopy to Biological and Solid State Chemistry
A variety of applications of Raman microscopy will be discussed. These will include the structural investigation of biological molecules such as cyclic amino acid dimers and cyclosporins which are important immunosuppressive pharmaceuticals. Further biological studies involve the examination of dental bacteria using Raman spectroscopy as the probe. Solid state Raman studies include the examination of pigments on works of art and investigations into novel phosphor materials. Information obtained on cyclic amino acid dimers from supporting techniques such as inelastic neutron scattering (INS) and quasi-elastic neutron scattering (QENS) will also be discussed.
