Abstract  An account on the application of solid-state CD on chiral metal complexes is briefly reviewed. Special focus is on the methods to record solid-state CD spectra of chiral solid sample, and then we switch to the comparison between solid-state and solution CD spectra of four pairs of chiral M(II) (M = Ni, Cu) Schiff base complexes. The solid-state CD spectra reveal that the chiral complexes mantain the same handeness found in solution states. But it is notable that there are some differences between the solid-state and solution CD spectra for the selective chiral complexes, which may be ascribed to some subtle tetrahedral distortion or conformational distinctions of the complexes between the two states.

Key wordsSolid-state circular dichroism(CD) spectroscopy      Method of measurement      Chirality      M(II) Schiff base complex
