The relationship between macroscopic chirality and chirality on the molecular level was unequivocally established in 1951 through anomalous X-ray scattering. Although this technique became the definitive method for determining the absolute configuration of a molecule, one important limitation of the approach is that the molecule must contain ‘heavy’ atoms (for example, bromine). The direct determination of absolute configurations for a wider range of molecules has recently become possible by… Expand
