The Jasco P-2000 Digital Polarimeter is housed in Clement 122.  It is primarily used by Professor Brindle and her research students. Many compounds possess the property of having non-identical mirror image forms. These two mirror image forms can have nearly identical properties, however, the differ in their interaction with plan-polarized light. This instrument uses plane polarized light to discriminate between the two forms and allow for the determination of the ratio of the two mirror image forms.
