All toroidal embeddings of polyhedral graphs in 3-space are chiral

Castle, Toen; Evans, Myfanwy; Hyde, Stephen


We investigate the possibility of forming achiral knottings of polyhedral (3-connected) graphs whose minimal embeddings lie in the genus-one torus. Various analyses to show that all examples are chiral. This result suggests a simple route to forming chiral molecules via templating on a toroidal substrate.
