Abstract

The relative and absolute configurations of long-chain syn- and anti-1,5-, 1,7- and 1,9-glycols were determined from exciton-coupled circular dichroism (ECCD) of the corresponding bis-5-(4′-carboxyl)-5,10,15,20-tetraphenylporphyrin esters measured in uniform (φ = 26 nm), unilamellar liposomes. Long-range transmission of configuration by ECCD is made possible through partial ordering of glycol ester-lipid molecules by liposomal bilayers.
