CD wavelength spectra of polymers can contain information about higher ordered structures beyond the identity of the chiral centers.  This aspect has been best applied to proteins, where analysis of  far-UV spectra allow estimates of the secondary structure content.  Here are several links to share-ware programs devoted to proteins.

Live Tutorials:
If you are a novice to CD instrumentation then a live class is an ideal way to get started.

Aviv Biomedical offers on-site training for its instruments.  The course includes theory,  applications, and hands-on experience with the instrument.  Contact Aviv for information.

No 3rd party tutorials are currently scheduled.  Check back here periodically.
