Peptide induces chirality evolution in a single gold nanoparticle
Scientists have created a synthesis method to make optically active and chiral gold nanoparticles using amino acids and peptides for the first time. Many chemicals significant to life have mirror-imaged twins and such characteristics are conventionally called as chirality. This study describes how the chirality, typically observed in organic molecules, can be extended to three-dimensional metallic nanostructures. The research will be published in Nature and featured in its cover.
