Chirality is a primary, continual, yet frequently missed function of all residing organisms at the molecular point in addition to at the macroscopic scale. The excessive measure of choice for just one of 2 attainable reflect picture types in Nature, referred to as organic homochirality is a difficult, and never but absolutely understood, phenomenon.

This publication covers organic homochirality from an interdisciplinary procedure - contributions variety from artificial chemists, theoretical topologists and physicists, from palaeontologists and biologists to house scientists and representatives of the pharmaceutical and fabrics industries.

Topics coated contain -
theory of biochirality,
origins of biochirality,
autocatalysis with amplification of chirality,
macroscopic (present) biochirality,
fossil documents of chiral organisms - paleochirality,
extraterrestrial starting place of chirality,
exceptions to the rule of thumb of organic homochirality, D-amino acids,
chemical move of chirality,
PV results, and
polarised radiation chemistry

Example text

The physical chirality in this device is presented by the distribution of the optical absorption coefficient, not by the shape of the vanes. All the examples presented here are of mechanical nature, that is, the effect of chiral interaction (CI) results in a mechanical rotation in one preferred direction out of two possible ones around a given axis of the device. e. the medium, usually is external to the chiral device. In the case of an electric device which generates a static current flowing in one preferred direction out of two possible ones, the source of the interaction may be embedded within the device.
