  The Raman and Raman optical activity (ROA) intensities calculated by Gaussian09W software are analyzed by our semi-classical bond polarizability algorithm to interpret their physical significance. Our algorithm enables the extraction of the charges disturbed on the individual bonds from the Raman mode intensities. As a case study of S 1-amino 2-propanol, we found that during Raman excitation, charges are more aggregated on its O-H bond. The ROA mechanism based on the coupling between the electric and magnetic dipoles predicts that those bonds less parallel to the O-H bond will acquire more chiral activity. This is confirmed by our bond polarizability analysis. Our approach offers a classical way to comprehend the ROA phenomenon.
