A simple analogical model for the selection of optical activity and of the most efficient catalysts in the course of molecular evolution


Analogical models, based on the use of simple hydrodynamic devices are proposed to discuss qualitatively and easily the properties of chemical networks of reactions implying a limited supply of a reagent usable in several parallel autocatalytic reaction pathways. This discussion shows that the racemic state can be unstable at the steady state in such… (More)
