Chirality is a geometric notion which refers to the handedness of an object. A chiral object is, by definition, a body that cannot be brought into congruence with its mirror image by translation and rotation. In other words, such a body lacks bilateral symmetry, and cannot be superposed on its mirror image. An object of this sort has the property of handedness and is said to be either right-handed or left-handed. An object that is not chiral is achiral. Some chiral objects occur in two versions… CONTINUE READING
