Chiral diastereomers, (1S)-ethyl-(3S)-carboxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro- β-carboline and (1R)-ethyl-(3S)-carboxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-β-carboline, were synthesized. Complete 1H and 13C NMR spectral assignments were made and the C-ring conformations were clarified by NMR spectral measurements and DFT potential energy calculation using the 6-31G(d) basis set. CD spectra were measured and the 1Lb band Cotton effects were found to be controlled by both the C1 absolute configuration and the C-ring conformation.
