In regard to infrared and isomers (enantiomers in particular), can FTIR distinguish these molecules? For example, if an IR absorbance spectrum for an unidentified drugs hits on l-amphetamine hydrochloride, does this mean that is a definitive id of the unknown drug? or could the unknown be d-amptheramine hydrochloride also? .. what about cocaine enantiomers? Thank you!
I know IR is designed to give structural information, but I wasn't sure about isomers. Thanks.
