Camphor-like compounds have previously been studied using vibrational circular dichroism spectrometry, but the C-H stretching region has been somewhat neglected in recent years. The normal modes of vibration corresponding to the quite prominent peaks in this region were investigated through density functional theory calculations at the B3LYP/6-31G(d,p) level and compared with VCD spectra taken from the molecules. Results can give an understanding of the source of prominent peaks in the spectra of these molecules, and serve as diagnostic tools for this class of molecules.
