Scientists Demonstrate Intrinsic Chirality in Ordinary Nanocrystals

Scientists Demonstrate Intrinsic Chirality in Ordinary Nanocrystals

Scientists from the Trinity College Dublin and the ITMO University have demonstrated that ordinary nanocrystals have intrinsic chirality, and this occurs due to chiral defects that take place naturally during normal nanocrystal synthesis. They have shown that the chiral nanocrystals could be produced as a half-and-half mixture under normal conditions and these would be mirror images of one another. This finding in nanocrystals has opened new possibilities in medicine, bio-technology and nanobiotechnology. In medicine it could be used for targeted delivery of drugs. [More]
