Control of molecular chirality is central to contemporary chemistry, biology, and materials-related areas. Chiral photochemistry employs molecular and supramolecular chiral interactions in the electronically excited state to induce molecular chirality, providing new and versatile strategies and surprising results unattainable by conventional thermal asymmetric synthesis. Chiral Photochemistry is the first book devoted solely to this rapidly growing area. This comprehensive and authoritative book covers all aspects of the subject, from circularly polarized light to supramolecular chiral source and from the origin of homochirality in the biosphere to chiral devices and materials.
