Tracking chirality in real time

Summary
Chiral molecules exist in two forms, called enantiomers, which are mirror images of each other and non-superimposable—much like a pair of hands. While they share most chemical and physical properties, enantiomers can have adverse effects in (bio)chemical phenomena. For example, a protein or enzyme may only bind one enantiomeric form of a target molecule.

Ground-Breaking Experiments: Tracking Chirality in Real Time

Chiral molecules exist in two forms known as enantiomers, which are mirror images of each other and non-superposable – much like a pair of hands. While most chemical and physical properties are shared, enantiomers can have adverse effects in (bio)chemical phenomena. For example, a protein or enzyme
