The quest for secondary structure in chiral dendrimers

Author affiliations

Abstract

This review highlights important developments in the pursuit of chiral conformational order in dendritic structures. To be able to create and control chiral secondary structure necessitates a thorough understanding of how chiral subunits influence the macroscopic structure. Recent studies involve highly sophisticated manipulation of macroscopic chirality through a creative combination of a wide range of synthetic, computational and analytical techniques.
