Weak neutral currents and the origin of biomolecular chirality

Abstract

It has long been known that Earth's biochemistry is overwhelmingly dissymmetric or chiral1–4. In model chemical systems5–7 that spontaneously evolve to a state dominated by either the L or the D enantiomer, parity violation in β-decay and that attributable to weak neutral currents (WNC) in molecules8,9 is thought to be too small to have any significant… (More)
