Abstract

Chiroptical sensors play a very important role in detecting a wide range of analytes with a high level of sensitivity, responding not only to complexation-induced electronic effects but also changes in helicity and conformation of molecules and materials. Many scaffolds have been employed that respond to metal cations, small molecules, anions, and other analytes. This article describes the main scheme of chiroptical sensing and introduces various chiroptical sensors that are primarily based on circular dichroism spectroscopy. Several examples are highlighted to illustrate the progress in recent years.
