The concept of chirality can be difficult for students to visualize. Vernier's Go Direct Polarimeter provides a visual representation of this concept by measuring the optical rotation of optical isomers such as sugars, amino acids and proteins.
The Vernier Go Direct Polarimeter is simple to use, includes free downloadable experiments and is supported by the free Vernier Instrumental Analysis™ app View >>>>

Its unique vertical layout and lack of custom glassware make this polarimeter very student friendly. In addition, the analyzer is automatically rotated by an internal motor giving students more time to understand experiments such as the reaction kinetics of HCl and sucrose.

The 589 nm LED makes it ideal for comparing optical rotation values to those in literature, allowing students to calculate specific rotation for sucrose, fructose and other optically active samples.
Students no longer have to determine the optical maximum with their eye as they now have a graph that shows a clear change in the light’s polarization.
