Through a quantitative discussion of THz modes in the racemic and enantiomeric systems of alanine, we have examined the restriction on the THz selection rule imposed by the space-group symmetries of molecular crystals. We have also revealed an essential role of intramolecular vibrations in the low-frequency region, which has been ignored for long. Although the intramolecular vibrations make marginal contributions to the vibrational energies of the low-frequency modes, they are essential to determine the IR intensities.
