The experimental circular dichroism (CD) spectra of uridine and NH2-uridine that were different in the intensity and shape were studied in the light of the ChiraSac method. The theoretical CD spectra at several different conformations using the symmetry-adapted-cluster configuration-interaction (SAC-CI) theory largely depended on the conformational angle, but those of the anti-conformers and the Boltzmann average reproduced the experimentally obtained CD spectra of both uridine and NH2-uridine. The differences in the CD spectra between the two uridine derivatives were analyzed by using the angle θ between the electric transition dipole moment (ETDM) and the magnetic transition dipole moment (MTDM).
