Vibrational Raman optical activity (R.o.a.) spectra of a range of carbohydrates in aqueous solution, measured in back-scattering between 700 and 1500 cm-1, are presented. Features were revealed that appear to be characteristic of details of the stereochemistry. Effects associated with the glycosidic linkage in di- and oligo-saccharides are prominent.
