Chiral nanoscale building blocks—from understanding to applications

Author affiliations

Abstract

Recent advances in the area of chiral nano-building blocks are presented and discussed in the context of nanoscience and nanotechnology moving toward emerging functional applications of chiral nanomaterials, such as enantioselective catalysis, sensing and chirooptical devices. The emphasis is given to chiral nanoparticles and clusters. General perspectives of related helical and tubular chiral nanostructures are considered in terms of transferring chirality from the molecular level onto the nanoscale and reducing it to practical use.
