"Latent" optical activity of molecules
We consider the question of the appearance of optical activity in an ensemble of oriented symmetrical molecules that are optically inactive when their orientation is random. We present experimental data that confirm the existence of such a "latent" optical activity and demonstrate the feasibility of using this method to investigate molecules.
