Enantioselective magnetochiral photochemistry

  title={Enantioselective magnetochiral photochemistry},
  author={Geert L. J. A. Rikken and E. Raupach},
Many chemical and physical systems can occur in two forms distinguished solely by being mirror images of each other. This phenomenon, known as chirality, is important in biochemistry, where reactions involving chiral molecules often require the participation of one specific enantiomer (mirror image) of the two possible ones. In fact, terrestrial life utilizes only the L enantiomers of amino acids, a pattern that is known as the ‘homochirality of life’ and which has stimulated long-standing… CONTINUE READING
