Abstract

Should Lord Kelvin's definition of chirality be modified to accommodate concepts associated with the chirality of large random supramolecular structures? Stimulated by a recent article by D. Avnir et al. (Chem. Eur. J.1996, 2, 174), L. D. Barron discusses this question. In their reply D. Avnir et al. further clarify and discuss their original thesis.
