Induction of chirality in achiral monolayers has garnered considerable attention in the recent past not only due to its importance in chiral resolutions and enantioselective heterogeneous catalysis but also because of its relevance to the origin of homochirality in life. In this contribution, we demonstrate the emergence of macroscopic chirality in… CONTINUE READING
