Abstract:Fucose is a deoxyhexose that is present in a wide variety of organisms. The stereochemical information, namely, glycosidic linkages $\alpha$ or $\beta$, gives significant features of the carbohydrate glycosidation position of the glycosylic acceptor [1].\vspace{4mm} Due to its applicability to all organic molecules and the reliability of ab initio quantum calculation, Vibrational Circular Dichroism VCD has some advantages over conventional electronic spectroscopy. However, for a molecule with many chiral centers such as carbohydrate, determination of the absolute configuration tends to be difficult because the information from each stereochemical center are mixed and averaged over the spectrum.\vspace{4mm} T. Taniguchi et al [2] reported that in the CH stretching region of carbohydrate, methyl glycosides exhibit a characteristic VCD peak at 2840 \wn, the sign solely reflects the anomeric carbon absolute configuration.\vspace{4mm} This work is an investigation of theoretical VCD spectra of $\alpha$-L-fucopyranoside and $\beta$-L-fucopyranoside with an implicit (PCM) and explicit consideration of water molecules using density functional theory DFT and the Potential Energy Distribution's analysis (PED) .\vspace{4mm} \textbf{Keywords} : VCD, DFT, PED, Fucopyranoside .\vspace{4mm} [1]. a) C.-H.
