Project Details

Description

Work was continued on the interpretation of the first neutron spectra obtained on a series of monosaccharides, disaccharides and compounds acting as saccharide models.
The work is carried out during visits to the ISIS facility at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
Progress is made in interpretation of the very complicated spectrum of trioxan, and on the adaptation of the normal coordinate program to handle lower symmetry and larger substances.
It is the intention to couple INS spectra to the optimisation of potential energy function parameters done with CFF, the Consistent Force Field.
