Absolute chirality of the γ-polymorph of glycine: correlation of the absolute structure with the optical rotation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Crystal specimens of the γ-polymorph of achiral glycine which crystallize in space groups P31 and P32 as determined by the anomalous X-ray scattering method are shown to be laevorotatory and dextrorotatory, respectively, as determined by optical rotation of the crystals.
