Abstract

Various researchers recently reported that they had first controlled the mesoscale helicity of achiral crystals with the use of chiral additives. In fact, Wallerant showed in 1907 that resorcinol crystals, among others, grew from the melt as helical fibers whose sense of twist was determined by resolved additives. Wallerant's demonstration is reproduced herein and his observations are given interpretation via computation of adsorption energetics through simulated annealing.
