Chiral nanotechnology

Jing Zhang, M. Teresa Albelda, Yu Liu, James W. Canary

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


A review of chiral, nanoscale science and technology is presented, with the subject divided into two topics. The first discusses nanotechnology in the service of asymmetric synthesis, chiral separations, and analysis. The second topic concerns broader research in the nanotechnology realm, where molecular chirality plays a role in the properties of materials, including molecular devices, chiral supramolecules, chiral nanotubes, chiral fullerenes, and DNA nanotechnology.
