In the CD (circular dichroism) spectra of (−)-1-methyl-1,2,3,4, tetrahydroisoquinoline, three CE (Cotton effects) are observed in the 300–200 nm region that are due to the absorption bands of the aromatic chromophore. The synthesis of this substance from (S)(−)-α-phenylethylamine and the CD spectra confirm its (S)-configuration.
