Optical chirality sensing using macrocycles, synthetic and supramolecular oligomers/polymers, and nanoparticle based sensors

Abstract

Optical sensors that respond to enantiomeric excess of chiral analytes are highly demanded in chirality related research fields and demonstrate their potential in many applications, for example, screening of asymmetric reaction products. Most sensors developed so far are small molecules. This Tutorial Review covers recent advances in chirality sensing systems that are different from the traditional small molecule-based sensors, by using macrocycles, synthetic oligomers/polymers, supramolecular polymers and nanoparticles as the sensors, in which supramolecular interactions operate.
