Optical Activity of Deuterated Analog of L-Arginine Phosphate Single Crystals
The complete optical gyration tensor of monoclinic pure L-arginine phosphate monohydrate (LAP) and deuterated LAP (d-LAP) crystals has been determined. Variation of the optical activity in the presence of birefringence of d-LAP crystal with pure LAP is found from the high-accuracy universal polarimeter (HAUP) method at a wavelength of 632.8 nm. The gyration tensor components in terms of rotatory power were found to be r11 = -6.6(3) º/mm, r22 = 19(2) º/mm; r33 = 49.7(7) º/mm; and r13 = -43.7(8) º/mm for the LAP, and r11 = -1.2(1) º/mm, r22 = 5.0(4) º/mm; r33 = 41.4(3) º/mm; and r13 = -38.0(4) º/mm for d-LAP at room temperature.
