Article title

Solid state linear-dichroic infrared (IR-LD) spectroscopic characterization of α-and β-glycine polymorphs


Title variants

Languages of publication



IR-LD spectroscopic analysis using nematic liquid crystal suspension as a solid-state orientation technique and the reducing-difference procedure for polarized spectra interpretation are applied to the α-and β-polymorphs of glycine. Both structural analysis and detailed IR band assignments were carried out.
