Conglomerate with periodic enantiomer inclusion: A mechanism for homochirality erosion

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two-dimensional enantiomers arising from an achiral oligomer form two-dimensional crystals that simultaneously display random mixing along one axis and periodic order along the other axis. This chirality behavior is interpreted in the contexts of kinetics and thermodynamics and considered as a mechanism for eroded enantioenrichment during recrystallization of scalemic mixtures.
