Rotatory strengths of the α-(1-naphtyl)-ethylammonium perchlorate (NEA)-phenazino-18-crown-6 ether molecular complex is determined theoretically by the coupled oscillator model and using ab initio random phase approximation (RPA) to describe local excitations on the chromophores. The computational results are compared to the experimental circular dichroism (CD) spectrum published previously. The good qualitative agreement between calculated and measured optical rotatory strengths allows one to assign the CD bands of the complex in a unique manner.
