Weak neutral currents and the origin of biomolecular chirality


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)
