Abstract

This review highlights important developments in the pursuit of chiral conformational order in dendritic structures. To be able to create and control chiral secondary structure necessitates a thorough understanding of how chiral subunits influence the macroscopic structure. Recent studies involve highly sophisticated manipulation of macroscopic chirality through a creative combination of a wide range of synthetic, computational and analytical techniques.
