Guiding chiral nanoparticle growth

In the past, scientists have grown chiral nanoparticles using templates, such as DNA or proteins. Now, researchers led by Seoul National University’s Ki Tae Nam and Pohang University of Science &Technology’s Junsuk Rho report that sulfur-containing chiral molecules, such as cysteine or glutathione, can guide the growth of gold nanoparticles into chiral structures
