Growth of Optically Active Chiral Inorganic Films through DNA Self-Assembly and Silica Mineralisation


The circularly polarized reflection of nature is due to their distinct azimuthally twisted or helical character in the nanostructure of the surface films. Although many chiral inorganic powders have been successfully synthesised, the artificial synthesis of chiral inorganic films is rare. Herein, we reported a facile synthetic route for the growth of… (More)
