Abstract

A single-chirality solid phase can be obtained in boiling solutions
containing a racemic mixture of left- and right-handed enantiomorphous
crystals due to dissolution–crystallization cycles induced
by a temperature gradient. This phenomenon provides further
insights into asymmetric amplification mechanisms under presumably
prebiotic conditions.
