Abstract / Description of output
Enantiomorphic symmetry breaking of stirred samples of molten sodium chlorate is demonstrated, revealing the unexpected involvement of an achiral solid phase. The results should stimulate future computational models of nucleation, including symmetry breaking, and have implications for mechanisms that invoke enantiomorphism in natural minerals to explain biohomochirality.
