Using the 6,6'-dibromo-[1,1'-binaphthalene]-2,2'-diol molecule and its vibrational absorption (VA) and vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectra measured in deuterated dimethyl sulfoxide as example, we present a first detailed study of the effects induced in VCD spectra by the large-amplitude motions of solvent molecules loosely bound to a solute molecule. We show that this type of perturbation can induce significant effects in the VA and VCD spectra. We also outline a computational procedure that can effectively model the effects induced in the spectra and at the same time provide detailed structural information regarding the relative orientations of moieties involved in a solute-solvent molecular complex.

A stereochemical feature of the hibarimicins is a central biaryl (HMP-Y6) or aryl-quinone (hibarimicinone) incorporated as a single atropodiastereomer. Herein, a chiral resolution and deracemization process to access optically enriched biaryls aR-3 and aS-3 is described. From these atropoenantiomers the BCD-EFG ring system of HMP-Y6 is constructed [(+)-aR-7]. Comparison of CD spectra of aR-7 to HMP-Y6 leads to the assignment of HMP-Y6 and hibarimicin B atropoisomers as aR and aS, respectively.
