Fundamental symmetry aspects of optical activity

Barron, L.D. (1981) Fundamental symmetry aspects of optical activity. Chemical Physics Letters, 79(2), pp. 392-394. (doi: 10.1016/0009-2614(81)80228-X)

The róle of time reversal, space inversion and charge conjugation symmetry in optical activity is discussed in an attempt to clarify recent statements about enantiomeric states. The discussion seems to conflict with recent assertions that optical activity has to be understood in a macroscopic context.
