Bottom Line: It was found that solvation changed both the conformational distribution and the ECD spectrum of each conformer.The ECD behavior of the bis(thiosemicarbazone) chromophore in a chiral environment is also discussed.Our results indicate that ECD spectroscopy may be a useful tool for the stereochemical evaluation of chiral drugs.

ABSTRACT
Phthiobuzone is a bis(thiosemicarbazone) derivative with a single chiral center which has been used as a racemate in the clinical treatment of herpes and trachoma diseases. In this study, its two enantiomers were prepared from chiral amino acids and their absolute configurations were investigated by electronic circular dichroism (ECD) combined with modern quantum-chemical calculations using time-dependent density functional theory. It was found that solvation changed both the conformational distribution and the ECD spectrum of each conformer. The theoretical ECD spectra of the two enantiomers were in good agreement with the experimentally determined spectra of the corresponding isomers in dimethyl sulfoxide. The ECD behavior of the bis(thiosemicarbazone) chromophore in a chiral environment is also discussed. Our results indicate that ECD spectroscopy may be a useful tool for the stereochemical evaluation of chiral drugs.
